Cayenne, between history and idleness

Before discovering the whole region and the tropical forest, take the time to take a walk in Cayenne, the capital of French Guyana. The historical center of the city offers many points of curiosity, especially its Creole houses typical of colonial architecture, with its colorful facades. Why not also visit the cathedral of Cayenne which dates back to the 19th century? The Place des Palmistes is the nerve center of the city: there you can admire the royal palm trees, before tasting the local specialties. Located on the Guyanese coast, Cayenne also offers many viewpoints over the Atlantic Ocean. The "Pointe des Amandiers" is particularly appreciated by lovers who come here to admire the sunset. If you want to treat yourself to a little lazy break, head for the long beaches of Montjoly, lined with coconut trees.
