Kourou River, Kourou

#4 of 7 in Nature in Arrondissement of Cayenne
Flowing farther than the eye can see, Kourou River pours out in the Atlantic Ocean. The river's brown, muddy waters give it a striking resemblance to the Amazon River. The many fish species living beneath the water's surface remain an important part of the local diet. Set off in a traditional log canoe called pirogue for a chance to appreciate the river and effortlessly snap a few memorable photos. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Kourou holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Kourou River and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
