If you hear any loud roars during your Kourou vacation, look up at the sky: you might have arrived in the small city just in time to see a rocket launch. Now home to French Guiana's space center, which serves as the launching pad for many European space missions, the city of around 25,000 people was once one of France's most notorious offshore prison colonies. With a humid tropical climate, today the city gives off a relaxed, beachside atmopshere. Add Kourou and other destinations in French Guiana to your travel plans using our French Guiana trip maker website.
