FRENCH GUIANA

FRENCH GUIANA

Bordering Suriname and Brazil, French Guiana is an overseas department of France. Frenche Guiana is most widely known for hosting the European Space Agency’s Centre Spatial Guyanais launching base and nearby Devil’s Island, which served as a penal colony from 1852 to 1946, with traces of this history still visible on the island. The space centre is located in the town of Kourou. The tourist industry in French Guiana is still in its infancy. The country is well-known for its rich nature reserves, as much of the country is covered in tropical jungle. The export of rum and shrimp and agriculture form the mainstays of the country’s economy. Consider sailing on the Maroni River on a proa, sharing the culture and way of life of the peoples living along the banks of the river: the Native Americans and Bushinengues. A visit to Saint-Laurent and the Kaw swamps, with its wildlife, also come heartily recommended. More up-scale hotels can be found in Kourou, the capital, Cayenne, and other locations.
