French Guiana Travel Guides


French Guiana sits well off the usual South American traveller’s radar.  This French speaking country nestled into the northeast corner of South America, bordering Brazil and Suriname, is famous for being one of the most expensive travel destinations in the western hemisphere and not famous for a whole lot else.  The capital of Cayenne is a cultural montage including French and Asian immigrants, decedents of African slaves brought to the region, as well as a growing population of Brazilians coming to the region in search of higher wages.  Those who have the time to explore into the interior will find a completely different country than exists in somewhat superficial Cayenne. In general, travel experiences in French Guiana are limited, but, as is the case with anywhere in the world, the experience is what you make of it.
