SIM Cards in French Guiana: The Best Prepaid Plans | 2024 Guide

French Guiana – also known as Guyane in French, not to be confused with neighboring English-speaking Guyana, is popular for its beaches, forests/reserves & hiking trails.

It is an overseas department of France, meaning it is part of the French Republic (France).

If the locals love or hate this construction – I do not know.

What I do know is that French Guiana has a lot to offer – up north, at least.

From various islands, like Devil's Island and Salvation's Island, to the (French) Guiana Space Center.

The (French) Guiana Amazonian Park is a hiking trail for the adventurous among us.

And, of course, the many luxurious resorts the department has to offer.

What may not be wonderful is the cost of travel in French Guiana. It is not the cheapest travel destination (in South America).

What is even more expensive are international roaming rates – roaming can be expensive.

That is why I always recommend local SIM cards so that you can take advantage of local rates, which are almost always cheaper than roaming rates.

As luck would have it, SIM cards are not crazy expensive in French Guiana.

You can get a French Guianese SIM card for 10 EUR (10.70 USD) from Digicel and La Poste Caraïbe Mobile or 15 EUR (16 USD) from Orange and SRF in their stores and from resellers. SIM cards are not sold at Cayenne – Félix Eboubé Airport (CAY).

Those SIM card prices are expensive for South American standards – that is for sure.

But hey, your mobile operator may charge you much more for roaming.

So it is a good compromise, I would say.

In this guide, I will tell you everything you need to know about buying a SIM card in French Guiana. Let's do this.

What is the Best SIM Card in French Guiana?

If you want to buy the best SIM card in French Guiana, I recommend going with Orange. It has the fastest speeds in the territory. Moreover, it allows for free roaming in the French West Indies (Guadeloupe, Martinique, Saint Barthélemy & Saint Martin – called Zone Locale).

(Travel) eSIMs for French Guiana

In recent years, (travel) eSIMs have become extremely popular.

Especially after Apple made iPhones (14- & 15 series) sold in the United States eSIM-only, forcing its users to use eSIMs – even when abroad.

As a result, the adoption of eSIM technology by mobile operators worldwide rose impressively quickly.

Currently, no French Guianese mobile operator offers eSIMs to prepaid customers.

In my French Guiana eSIM buying guide, I analyze various eSIM options of eSIM providers I have tested extensively worldwide.

Buying an eSIM for French Guiana Guide (logos of Holafly, Nomad, Latamlink, Discover+, Kawcom, Alosim & Airalo)

Surprisingly, travel eSIMs can be cheaper than a French Guianese SIM card or eSIM in specific scenarios.

Moreover, Latin (Central- and South) America-wide and global eSIM options are also available at competitive prices (without having to deal with expensive international roaming rates).

In this French Guiana SIM card buying guide (the one you are reading), I will stick to the local SIM cards and eSIM, but you can read my French Guiana eSIM buying guide for more information about travel eSIMs covering the country.

But here is a quick overview already + applicable discount codes if you are interested in purchasing a travel eSIM for French Guiana:

  • Airalo: KAWCOM (French Guiana only) & Latamlink (19 countries in Latin (Central- and South) America)
  • Holafly: French Guiana
  • Nomad: Global (109 or 139 countries, depending on the variant)

Here are some discount codes to sweeten the deal:

  • Airalo: NEWMAY15 for 15% off (if you have never bought an Airalo eSIM before). Otherwise, AIRALOMAY10 for 10% off (for existing users) – only the first 3000 users can redeem either discount code)
  • Holafly: PHONETRAVELWIZ for 5% off (as many times as you wish for as many eSIMs as you want)
  • Nomad: ADU123 for 3 USD off (on your first-ever Nomad order only)

Once again, check out my French Guiana eSIM buying guide to learn more about these eSIM options.

The eSIM guide is as comprehensive as this SIM card buying guide, but it solely focuses on travel eSIMs (while the guide you are reading focuses on local SIM cards and eSIMs for prepaid users (where applicable).
