French Guiana, a overseas "Departement" of France, is best visited during the months of August to November. While those are also the hottest months, they are also the only ones during which the average rainfall is below 20 days. Usually, you can expect 9-15 days of rain during that time.
Regardless of the climate, some people like to go there to watch the rocket launches of the European Space Agency's launch site at Guiana Space Centre.
