French Guiana is an overseas region of France in South America.

Even the Lonely Planet says that hitchhiking is doable, so unlike the former British colony Guyana (which is considered rather unsafe), you can stick out your thumb without too much worries. Naturally, it helps if you can speak French.

Wisdomseeker has hitchhiked in French Guiana - it is certainly 'doable'. It is generally a safe country (technically an overseas department of France).

Nveselinov has hitchhiked in French Guiana - it is very good. The most of the peoples are very good. I traveled from Kouru to St. George (the border town with Brasil). There were not many cars in the area near the border, but every 3-4th car takes you. I went form Kouru to St. George for 4,5 hours.
