Traveling to French Guiana with a baby requires special attention to ensure your child's comfort and safety.

Here are a few important points to keep in mind during your trip :

  • Health and vaccinations: before you leave, consult your pediatrician to make sure your baby is in good health and up to date with vaccinations. Find out which vaccinations are recommended for French Guiana, as some may be required to enter the country.

  • Protection against tropical diseases: As French Guiana is a tropical region, there is an increased risk of mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria and dengue fever. Be sure to protect your baby by using appropriate repellents and covering his or her skin with light clothing.

  • Hydration: Because of Guyana's hot, humid climate, it's essential to keep your baby hydrated by offering regular water or breast milk/formula, especially if he or she is breast-feeding.

  • Sun protection: The sun can be intense in Guyana, so protect your baby's sensitive skin by using suitable sun cream, wide-brimmed hats and light clothing that covers his arms and legs.

  • Insect management: In addition to mosquitoes, there may be other insects in the Guyanese jungle. Use mosquito nets for cribs and strollers and avoid insect-infested areas, especially in the evening.

Pack essential equipment

Don't forget to pack all your baby's essentials, such as diapers, wipes, a change of clothes, bottles, baby food and medication if necessary. You may not be able to find certain items easily in some parts of Guyana, so make sure you pack enough supplies for the duration of the trip.
