French Guiana holidays by Cox & Kings

French Guiana is half the size of its neighbour, Suriname. As one of France’s overseas departments, it acts as a little piece of Europe in this remote corner of South America. It’s a mix of tropical South America and modern France with gendarmes, outdoor cafes, colonial buildings, rainforest and plantations.
