Marshes of Caw, 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.

  • It is a very special place, where you have the chance to see several animals (birds, sloths, caimas...) We are very well supervised by professionals. Our guide Ricky is passionate about this place and shares his knowledge with us. The welcome aboard the ecolodge is just perfect. Recommended for all nature lovers!
