Helen lived some time in Cayenne a long time ago, going back and forth to Paramaribo. So we were retracing her steps doing this trip to French Guiana from Paramaribo.

We found that tourism is much less developed in French Guiana than it is in Suriname. For nature lovers French Guiana certainly is not less attractive than Suriname. Yet we met a lot of French Guianese doing tours in Suriname. The reason may be that Suriname is cheaper, French Guiana being Euro-country.
