French Guiana Holidays


Although French Guiana is officially part of France, it's hard to think of two places more different.

One of the most surprising sights is the Guiana Space Centre, a major European spaceport and home to regular launches.

Visit Saint Laurent du Maroni for it's fascinating but tragic history as a 19th Century penal colony. The nearby Plage les Hattes is home to nesting turtles from March to August and is well worth a visit.

If you've come this far, you'll undoubtedly visit Cayenne - French Guiana's capital - at some point. Home to an amazing array of cultures, it's an intriguing place to spend a couple of days.
