Cayenne ©
The capital of French Guiana, Cayenne sits at the mouth of the Cayenne River on the department's Atlantic coast.
Explore Cayenne's surroundings by going to Kourou (Kourou Space Centre (Guiana Space Centre) & Les Iles du Salut) and Bois de Rose Garden (in Montsinery-Tonnegrande). There's still lots to do: head off the coast to Devil's Island, examine the collection at Musee Departmental Alexandre-Franconie, wander the streets of Place des Palmistes, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Sauveur Cathedral.

For other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, read our Cayenne itinerary planner.

Newark, USA to Cayenne is an approximately 21.5-hour flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Newark to Cayenne due to the time zone difference. Expect much hotter temperatures when traveling from Newark in March; daily highs in Cayenne reach 85°F and lows reach 75°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Wed) to allow time to travel to Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni.
