POCKET GUIDE TO FRENCH GUIANA
Cayenne, French Guiana’s capital city, is wonderfully quaint, its streets lined with vibrantly coloured colonial-style houses in turquoise, pinks, and yellows. Its diversity of cultures is displayed in its restaurants (French, Creole, Brazilian and Chinese) as well as its main market where you can stock up on an array of African-style paintings, Hmong handicrafts, exotic fruits, and spices. Of the city’s few museums, Musée des Cultures Guyanaises is one of the best and is dedicated to the island’s early history.
