I like the view over the large square from the bar Les Palmistes terrace. I can watch people go by between the palm tree rows, look at the colonial buildings surrounding Place des Palmistes. It exudes old-world charm especially at night.

I arrived at night just as the Carnaval events ended for the day. Relatively clean with all the people. By next morning the area was clean and no evidence of an event. Surrounded by palms and nice place to sit and relax.

The park is a nice little stop in the middle of town. Although not a whole lot happening when we were there, it was a good place to sit and enjoy some shade. The main shops, restaurants and banks are all surrounding.

It is the square where the Palmist Restaurant is located. Nice place to take pictures and get a little stroll.

If you love palm trees this is obviously a fun place to visit! It is centrally located and has an interesting statue in the middle.

Nice place in Cayenne. You can eat sandwiches all around the "place des palmistes" at night. Be careful after midnight and dont go south of the General de Gaulle street bording the "place", or dont go alone.
