Located on the northeastern coast of South America, this little-known country has a lot to offer Canadian tourists. Bordered by Suriname to the west, the Atlantic Ocean to the north and Brazil to the east and south, French Guiana is known for its diverse and eclectic population, dense rainforests and thriving space centre. However, ecotourism continues to be the biggest reason why travellers visit the country.
Whether you want to spend your time lounging on beautiful beaches or exploring rainforests and wildlife, you can put your mind at ease by getting comprehensive travel insurance for your trip. Blue Cross offers personalized travel insurance rates based on your age and trip duration.

From the Salvation Islands, Hattes Beach, Trésor Nature Reserve, Rémire-Montjoly Beach, Place Victor Schoelcher market and Cacao, there are countless experiences you should make part of your trip.
