Mana is a commune and town in French Guiana. It was founded in 1828 by Anne-Marie Javouhey. It borders the Mana river, whence it gets its name; and is nearby the Maroni River. Mana is the primary producer of rice in French Guiana, which it exports to Suriname.
On 1 January 1989, about 3% of the territory of Mana was detached and became the commune of Awala-Yalimapo.
