French Guiana is one of the most expensive regions in South America, in part because it uses the euro and imports many goods from France. The only cambios for currency exchange are in Cayenne, but guichets automatiques (ATMs) are found in most mid-sized to large towns.

Credit cards are widely accepted, and you can get Visa or MasterCard cash advances at guichets automatiques, which are on the Plus and Cirrus networks. Eurocard and Carte Bleu are also widely accepted.
