I'm going to French Guiana!

I can't believe it.

I will be flying Air France's once-weekly Island Hopper. From Miami, it stops in Guadeloupe, Martinique, and finally, Cayenne. Port-au-Prince used to be a stop, but Air France no longer serves Haiti.

The plan is to stay at a colonial era hotel in Cayenne and go on day trips.

The itinerary:

  • Minibus or shared taxi to Suriname border
  • Minibus or shared taxi to Brazil border
  • Visit Cacao in the jungle; it's a Hmong village full of former refugees
  • Space center tour; I just got a ticket for a three-hour tour
  • Devil's Island
