This region is so full of facets that I can not wait to discover it. I intend to make a trip not easy, like the Guyana, which will be an adventure: hiking, camping, canyoning will be part of the program !. But as I arrive in town, near Cayenne, the beginning of the trip will be calm and relaxing to recover back from the jet lag and the plane. Then, I will tackle the more exciting activities.

Day 1:

– arrival in Guyana, at the international airport Felix éboué, 15km from the capital Kayenne.
– join Cayenne and visit the city in the afternoon to enjoy the delights of capital (see the article on this city). With a little amount of chance and pixie dust, maybe even attempt to see the famous carnival!
