French Guiana Travel guide

French Guiana, an overseas territory of France, is a beautiful country in South America and composed mainly of tropical rainforest. Bordered by Brazil and Suriname, it’s a very colorful country, where you can enjoy a lovely vacation. Get lost in the coastal plains, small mountains and the hills. Read more

  • The Yellow Fever immunization is mandatory, so make sure that you pay your doctor a visit before departure. Leaving documentation aside, you will like French Guiana. The climate is tropical, a little bit humid, but the seasons are not very different as far as the temperature is concerned. You can enjoy the tropical weather while you sit on the beach and sip a cold beverage. Or you can go and explore the vast wilderness. The hill plateaus and the Tumuc-humac Mountains are not to miss while in French Guiana. As to how you can get to French Guiana, you have multiple options. You can take a plane and land in Cayenne. Here is the only international airport in French Guiana.
  • You can choose Air France or Air Caraibe, whichever is the most convenient for you. Also, you can travel by boat since the North Atlantic Ocean borders the territory. Lastly, you can get in French Guiana by car from Brazil or Suriname. Getting around French Guiana is pretty easy. You can travel inside the country by bus, but you need to know that the buses do not come asoften as you would like. There are only a few of them per day, which can be a bit frustrating. Taxis are very easy to find, but the fares are quite expensive. Renting a car is yet another viable option, but do not expect to see roads in the inner parts of the country. The Cayenne Airport has flights to inland cities, but as you can expect, the plane tickets are not the cheapest options. That is why a lot of people travel by boat. It may be slower, but the fares are fit for a decent budget. Before traveling to French Guiana, you should learn some basic French. Not many people understand English, although the officials might. The rest of the population speaks French and Creole. Since there are any Brazilians and Dominicans in French Guiana, Portuguese and Spanish are also common.
  • The food in French Guiana is fantastic. Their diet consists of a lot of fish and seafood, but the locals know how to make it delicious. However, you need to be careful because the people of French Guiana are quite liberal with spices, which can be a bit rough for your stomach. Surely you have heard about Cayenne pepper, right? Where do you think that name comes from? Just to make sure that you can eat the food, you can mention to the wait/chef that you want your food less spicy than usual. The bottom line is that French Guiana is an interesting region that is worth visiting. There is a lot to explore, the people are nice, and you will have a lovely experience. The wilderness and the rainforest will charm you into coming back.
