Islands · Landmarks · Gardens
The capital of French Guiana, Cayenne sits at the mouth of the Cayenne River on the department's Atlantic coast. Founded by the French in 1644, the city passed between colonial hands until 1817, when French rule was restored. The population of approximately 55,000 is ethnically diverse, with Haitian, European, Hmong, Creole, Brazilian, and other Asian communities adding to the rich tapestry of the city's cultural heritage. You can enrich your Cayenne holiday by attending any one of many cultural events held here throughout the year, including dances, carnivals, parades, and other traditional festivities. Before you visit French Guiana, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

Where to stay in Cayenne

Appealing to a rather exclusive set of travelers, chain hotels and resorts in the west of town offer a great range of luxury services, modern facilities, and rooms overlooking the river. Step back from the water to find humbler lodgings at basic hotels, guesthouses, and rental properties catering to budget-conscious travelers.
