Cayenne is the capital and largest city in French Guiana. The city is located on the northeastern coastline and has about 100,000 inhabitants living in the total urban area of Cayenne. Since 1664 when the French established a settlement here, Cayenne has been inhabited permanently. It is a very ethnically divere city with people like Europeans, Haitians, Brazilians and Creole people and combined with the French influence is rather unique in South America. Although it may not be the highlight of a visit to the country, the capital at least deserves a day or so to experience the closest thing resembling a city in French Guiana, and there are several good hotels and points of interest to fill a day.
Cayenne is hot and humid all year round, with temperatures rarely dropping below 20 °C at night and hovering around 30 °C or more during the day. The rainy season lasts from January to June. Obviously the drier (but even warmer) season of July to early December is the best season to visit.
Cayenne-Rochambeau Airport (CAY) receives all international arrivals and departures. Air France has flights from Cayenne to Paris, Paramaribo, Miami, Haiti, Guadeloupe and Martinique. Air Caraibes flies to Santo Domingo and a few destinations mentioned above, while TAF Linhas Aereas has flights to several Brazilian cities like Belem, Fortaleza and Recife.
