Cayenne is where the Caribbean meets the Amazon. It really is a melting pot of French, Creole, Amazonian and Indochina, and offers some pretty interesting (at times dark) history. It's the capitol of French Guiana - a French overseas region that uses Euros and boasts beaches, rum cocktails and French colonial architecture. Take one of the two roads leading out of town and you'll discover hidden forest, wetlands, jungle and plenty of reptiles. Cayenne is definitely a place to exercise all of your senses.
The penal colony of Cayenne, commonly known as Devil's Island (Île du Diable), was a famous prison of the 19th and 20th century. It is just like the movie Papillon, since it was filmed on the main island - Île Royale. You don't actually go to Devil's Island although you can see it very clearly. Very hot and humid and friendly monkeys.
