French Guiana is a South American country located between Brazil and Suriname. As it is owned by France, French Guiana is also a part of the European Union. One reason for France's continued interest in the region is because of the French space center located in the city of Kourou. This ensures the French government continues to support the local government. Because the economy is so well supported, prices in French Guiana can be higher than those of their neighbors. However, don't let that cause you to have reservations about traveling here. There are plenty of great cheap hotel deals in French Guiana available through Expedia.
The weather in French Guiana is tropical all year around. The temperature is normally hot and humid with very little variation, though it is a little cooler during the rainy season, which starts in November and lasts through July.
