    Good mooring performance during the dry season. Be careful though the many tree trunks carried by the river in the rainy season. For water, contact the association Pariacabo Sails to the pontoon of the CSG (pontoon shuttle islands). Shops nearby (10 minutes walk). Market Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Bakery and WIFI point on the parking of the shuttle.

    Bonne tenue du mouillage en saison sèche. Attention toutefois aux nombreux troncs d'arbres charriés par le fleuve en saison des pluies. Pour l'eau, contacter l'association Pariacabo Voiles au ponton du CSG (ponton de la navette des iles). Commerces à proximité (10 mn de marche). Marché les mardis, vendredis et samedis. Boulangerie et point WIFI sur le parking de la navette.

    Poor holding because of insanely soft mud. My boat dragged ashore. Luckily without damage. 2 stars because easily getting ashore.

    In Pariacabo, near Kourou: commercial port, customs to make clearance. Mooring rather unpleasant if the wind gets involved.

    À Pariacabo ,proche de Kourou: port de commerce, douanes pour effectuer clearance . Mouillage assez désagréable si le vent s’en mêle.
