Marshes of Caw, Arrondissement of Cayenne

#1 of 23 in Parks in French Guiana
Hike or take a guided boat tour of Marshes of Caw to see a diverse range of bird and animal life, from snakes and caiman to capybara. Tours of the marshes happen day and night, in search of caiman and a glimpse of the rare and colorful Andean cock-of-the-rock. You can also take independent hikes on the jungle trails through bamboo forests and swamps, spotting poison dart frogs and monkeys. Consider extending your stay overnight at the floating lodge, where you can eat, sleep, and set out again in the morning.

  • Night stay with night out in a dugout, and night on board the Caymanecolodge. The canoe ride is interesting, and our guide Ricky really had an eye for the animals, especially the caimans that he can see carpet edits at the bottom of the water at night... On the other hand everything is done in a group, it's friendly but it's also noisy, and do not be bothered by promiscuity. The hammocks are all tight together, without any visual separation. I recommend booking beds if you can, it's the same price and there are curtains. Be careful if it rains (which was not the case for us) I think the output must be much less nice ...

  • We hadn't booked but on the spot a dugout took us for a small price to walk on the marsh
