Small, stable and supported by France, French Guiana, enjoys both the Caribbean Coast and access to the Amazon. Consequently French Guiana tourism focuses on beach or wildlife holidays.
Travel to Trésor Nature Reserve to walk through tropical forest. Alternatively trek the Sentier Molokoi de Cacao deep in the forests, to see capuchins and large numbers of birds. Bird watchers will also delight in the marshlands of Kaw. The finest wildlife experience though is watching leatherback turtles lay their eggs at Awala-Yalimopo.
For a beach holiday in French Guiana with some history and culture, head to Îles du Salat, a group of islands including the devil's island, which was once the country's most well-known penal colony.
