Air

All international and domestic flights leave from Félix Eboué International Airport, which has flights to Paris, Paramaribo, Belem and Pointe-à-Pitre.

Bus

Minibuses leave when full from the makeshift Gare Routière Monday to Friday, with fewer services on the weekend. In general, if you want to get anywhere reliably in French Guiana by bus, come early in the morning, when you have the most chance of finding transport.

Car & Motorcyle

Renting a car can be cheaper than public transport if two or more people are traveling together. Some companies have offices in Kourou, St Laurent du Maroni and at the airport (some have airport-pickup surcharges of up to €25). Expect to pay from €35 per day for a compact car with unlimited mileage. Cars are not allowed over the border. Be sure to leave Cayenne with a full tank, as gas stations are extremely limited in the rest of the country.

Avis Also has an office at the airport.

Budget Zone Galmot is on the Cayenne outskirts, just off Av Galmot; also has an office at the airport.

Sixt Has a convenient downtown office, as well as an office at the airport and was planning to open an office in St Laurent du Maroni at the time of research.

Taxi Collectif

Taxis collectifs (minibuses) leave when full from the Gare Routière on Av de la Liberté until 6pm daily. From the corner of Rue Molé, they head to Matoury (€2, 15 minutes, 10km) and St Laurent (€35, four hours, 250km). From the corner of Rue Malouet, they depart for Kourou (€8, one hour, 60km) and St Georges (€15, two hours, 100km). Settle rates in advance and show up around 8am to get a spot. Be very careful, however, as there have been reports of muggings by drivers – if possible ask a local to help you find a reliable driver, or ask at the Office du Tourisme.
