"Doing French Guiana from Suriname" French Guiana by theo1006

French Guiana Travel Guide: 133 reviews and 358 photos

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 will not duplicate the excellent pages of Johnkebab, instead we will highlight what captured our interest.

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.

This picture is of a wrecked ship, "Edith Cavell", in full view of the Tourism Office at Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni. With it's dense foliage it is much more interesting than Paramaribo's Goslar.
