Guianas

Guianas Travel Guide

The coastal region of Guyana is dominated by a mix of Calypso music, Hindu temples and Demerara sugar. Travel inland to remote rainforests, wildlife-rich savannahs and isolated ranches. Suriname also has an intriguing combination of Dutch, Asian and African, influencing culture, food and street life.
Guyane is an overseas department of France, with a famous former penal colony on Iles du Salut, a European space programme at Kourou and jungle adventure. Use this Guianas travel guide to this trio of countries where coffee and croissants are served and the prices are more than Parisian.
