You may not have known of this particular area of Latin America as its giant neighbor often overshadows it. It’s owned by a country far away. I’m talking about the (French-owned) territory of French Guiana, which sits quietly in between Suriname and Brazil - the aforementioned giant. The land of French Guiana is primarily made up of equatorial rainforests and plentiful palms. Cayenne, the capital of French Guiana has a gallimaufry of Creole houses and enticing outdoor markets, as well as a collection of shops around Place des Palmiste, the capital’s central square. About an hour up the coast from Cayenne is the town of Kourou. Here you will find the Guiana Space Center, complete with a rocket launch site and museum, and the ÎIes du Salut, islands where prisons were previously housed. These are just two of the curious sights around Kourou So, check out some of Airbnb vacation rental options around Kourou to get your vacation started today!
