Welcome to St Laurent du Maroni

Today, St Laurent houses the country's finest colonial architecture and remains dominated by penal buildings and the ghosts of its prisoners. Along the banks of the Fleuve Maroni (Marowijne River), bordering Suriname, St Laurent is also a place to take a river trip to Maroon and Amerindian settlements. It's set up better for tourism than any other town in the country including Cayenne and, if you've been getting frustrated by the difficulty of travel in French Guiana, you'll find it refreshingly easy to organize activities here.
