Health

Chloroquine-resistant malaria is present in the interior, and French Guiana is considered a yellow-fever–infected area. The Zika virus is present in French Guiana too, so take extreme precautions if you are pregnant, and avoid the rainforest altogether. Excellent medical care is available, but few doctors speak English. Water is fine in bigger towns; drink bottled or boiled water elsewhere.
