You could also visit Marina SLM in Saint Laurent du Maroni on the border between French Guiana and Suriname.
Noonsite: Saint Laurent du Maroni â€”
There is not much info on the website but you can get the contact details there. David and his assistants speaks excellent English
and are most helpful. Watch out for fishing
boats and nets up to 20 nautical miles offshore
along the French Guiana coast. Enter the river during daylight hours and allow several hours to sail/motor up to Saint Laurent du Maroni - keep to the French Guiana side of the river as you enter and proceed up the river. Follow the marked channels from the sea to enter the river - the river also have beacons but are spaced far apart and are not lit at night. The fresh river water
will also cause all the barnacles
growth clinging to your hull
to fall off. We were there for 2 weeks and enjoyed the peace and quiet.
