Kourou River, Kourou

#9 of 11 in Parks in French Guiana
Flowing farther than the eye can see, Kourou River pours out in the Atlantic Ocean. The river's brown, muddy waters give it a striking resemblance to the Amazon River. The many fish species living beneath the water's surface remain an important part of the local diet. Set off in a traditional log canoe called pirogue for a chance to appreciate the river and effortlessly snap a few memorable photos.
