Cayenne is the capital of french Guiana. In some aspects it looks like a small provincial town somewhere in France, but in most ways it is very much a Caribbean town.


Cayenne has quite an interesting museum, the Musee Departmental de la Francofonie on rue de Remire, it has a good ethnological collection.

The area around the Canal Luassat is known as La Crique and is well worth a visit, although it can be dangerous to venture there on your own.
