Many of us like to stay in touch while we are on vacation. An easy and often
inexpensive way to do this is through cybercafes. We have visited a few in
the French West Indies, and we give you some information on their location
and hours. We also provide a link to cybercafes.com, which provides links to
cybercafes all over the world.
We found a handful of cybercafes during our visit in April, 1999. Chez Gilles (Telephone: 66 11 07) is at the Marina at Pointe du Bout. Chez Gilles is open every day from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm. We had a nice lunch (salads, pizza, ice cream) and the 3 PCs were easily available. Fifteen minutes online cost 30 FF, 30 minutes costs 50 FF, and an hour costs 80 FF.
In Marin, access is available in the first floor office of the Harbormaster (Telephone: 74 91 21). Fifteen minutes costs 20 FF, 30 minutes is 35 FF.
In Forte de France, we passed Le Web Cyber Cafe, but it was closed. It is on Rue Blénac, about a half block off La Savane.
Internet cafes guide provides links to cybercafes all over the world. We have checked for accuracy, and as always, the changing face of the Web means no one can keep up. So check the page, but remember to follow links and confirm the cafe listed is still online, and remember that there are likely new cybercafes available and not yet listed. Help out and report new cybercafes as you find them.
The CyberCafe Search Engine claims to be updated daily. It contains a searchable database for cyber cafes, kiosks, and other public internet access points.
The Internet Cafe Guide. not to be confused with the previouse guide, also contains links to cybercafes but in handy book form you can take with you in your travels. Because of the frequent changes, we recommend checking online sources instead.
Technotravel is another resource for getting online while abroad. This site covers using other computers, but it also gives information you can use when you bring your own with you. Recommended.
If you find public Web access points in the French West Indies, please let us know. We will gladly add information to this page, giving credit to the intrepid explorers who report new finds and tell us of the disappearance of old finds. Doing business as a cybercafe is not easy.
