About French Guiana
French Guiana, also known as Guyane in French, can be found on the northeastern coast of South America, and shares borders with Brazil and Suriname. Its capital is Cayenne, and is found on the coast looking over the Atlantic Ocean. French Guiana is an overseas territory of France, with French as the official language. The country enjoys a tropical climate which is appealing to many tourists, and the rugged, low-lying wilderness is ideal for explorers looking for their first adventure in South America.
There is a space station in French Guiana, where it is possible to see a rocket launch, and this is a definite must-see when you’re in the area. There are frequent markets throughout the country, with the most notable being the Hmong Market at Cacao. It is also possible to witness sea turtles laying their eggs at Remire-Montjoly beach, and the relaxed pace of life makes it particularly pleasant to spend time sunbathing and relaxing on the coast.
