Accurate, up-to-date public holidays, bank holidays, and observances in French Guiana for 2021 ready to be integrated into your application.

Discovered in 1496 by Spanish explorers, French Guiana is located in South America, and was later colonized by the French. In 1797 French Guiana became an overseas department of France and is the only territory in the Americas mainland to still be part of a European country. Much of French Guiana is covered by forests, and is home to illegal and ecologically destructive gold mines.
