The path of Montabo
Just 10 minutes from our establishment on foot, you will have access to a shaded hill-side walking trail, the Montabo trail (better known as the IRD trail). It is punctuated by sea views where it is sometimes possible from August to see dolphins as you approach the shore.
Travel time: 1H for the Round Trip, depending on the speed. Distance from the trail: 3.8km.
Les Îlets Dupont
From the terrace of your room on the first floor, you will see a small coastal archipelago, the islets of Dupont, less than 500M away. Enjoy the pleasure of being outdoors by considering going there by canoe kayak with a guide from the nearby beach. This sporty sea trip will take you to a marine environment frequented by many species of birds, turtles in season. The view of Pointe Montjoyeux and the Residence is breathtaking on the way back. Please ask at the reception for reservations.
Cayenne's city centre is accessible in about ten minutes by car. You will be seduced by the colourful architecture of the Creole houses near the Place des Palmistes or the market. Your cultural discovery of the city continues by visiting the Museum of Guyanese Cultures or the Franconian Territorial Museum. Beautiful collections of objects are on display, not to mention the paintings of the famous FLAG on the bagne prison.
