Hikes and walks in the forest



HAS 10 minutes from the hotel towards the airport, the Mont Grand Matoury Nature Reserve (234m) preserves 2,123 hectares of primary forest at the gates of the towns of Cayenne and Matoury.

The two loop trails (2 and 2.5 km) allow the discovery of a mosaic of natural environments rich in birds characteristic of the coast but also of the interior forest massif, tree frogs... and beautiful specimens of trees including the smallest bamboo in the world.

Travel time of the two trails (3.9 km grand tour) :

3 hours. Guided tour every second Sunday of the month, inquire at the Tourist Office of Matoury.


In the town of Rémire-Montjoly, 30 minutes from the hotel, the Rorota trail is accessible by the beach road. Well frequented by walkers and sports enthusiasts, this path is a loop punctuated by points of view remarkable on the bay of Montravel and its beaches, the islets of Rémire in the distance.
With a little luck, it is possible to see the squirrel monkeys, as well as discreet little squirrels or the sleeping sloth at the top of its favorite tree, the cannon wood.

As this trail is subject to administrative closure, inquire about its accessibility at the Montjoly Tourist Information Point.

Discover biodiversity, observe wildlife (1 hour  of the hotel)


The Botanical Garden of Guyana is accessible by the RN1 after Macouria, in the direction of Kourou. It presents you on 3 hectares a beautiful collection of more than 250 orchids, but also 4,500 surprising plants (heliconias, carnivorous plants, etc.) to discover along a linear route independently or in the company of a guide (by reservation). Do not miss the visit to the House of Vanilla and endemic Amazonian varieties.


A few kilometers from the botanical garden, the Guyana Zoo is an opportunity to get to know the fauna often found in the forest, not often seen, sometimes just heard. A practicable marked trail whatever the weather guide your steps and those of your children in the zoo for a visit of about two hours to discover parrots, felines, tapirs, the giant anteater ... a fun walk on footbridges suspended in the trees allows an approach different from the forest. Open 7 days out of 7.
