French Guiana

French Guiana is a unique overseas department of France located in the Caribbean region of Central America. It is bordered by Brazil to the east and south, Suriname to the west, and the North Atlantic Ocean to the north. It is the only French-speaking country in Central America.

The capital of French Guiana is Cayenne, located on the north coast of the country. French Guiana has an area of 83,534 square kilometers, making it the second largest department of France. The population is estimated to be around 250,000 people.

Geographically, French Guiana is situated in a tropical rainforest climate. It has a humid, hot, and rainy climate, with an average temperature of 27 degrees Celsius. The terrain is mostly flat, with rolling hills in the south and east. The highest point in the country is Mont Roraima, which stands at 2,835 meters above sea level.

In terms of its history, French Guiana was colonized by the French in the 17th century. It was used as a penal colony from 1852 until 1946. During this time, more than 80,000 convicts were sent to the country. In 1946, the country officially became an overseas department of France.

In recent years, French Guiana has become an important center for space exploration. The European Space Agency has its spaceport located in Kourou, from which it launches its Ariane rockets. The country is also home to the Guiana Space Centre, the world’s largest space launch facility.
