(4.4/5 based on 75+ reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: sightseeing
Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni is a commune of French Guiana, an overseas region and department of France located in South America. Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni is one of the two sub-prefectures of French Guiana and the seat of the Arrondissement of Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni. It is the second most populous city of French Guiana, with 40,462 inhabitants at the Jan. 2011 census.GeographySaint-Laurent-du-Maroni is a border town in north-west French Guiana. It is located on the Maroni River (in Dutch: Marowijne), opposite the town of Albina in Suriname which can be reached by ferry or pirogue. It does not, therefore, have an Atlantic coast; this may have affected the choice of the town's location, which can be explained by the desire of the penal authorities to avoid prisoners escaping by a sea route.The ethnic composition of the town is, as everywhere in French Guiana, diverse: Taki-Taki-speaking Maroons are today the largest ethnic group, followed by Creoles, Amerindians, Haitians, métropolitains and Brazilians.
