The Cayenne River is a 50 km-long river in French Guiana. Formed by the Cascades River and the Tonnégrande River, it flows into the Atlantic Ocean near the city of Cayenne, forming a large estuary, about 2 km long.

The river was prominently featured in both the movie and book Papillon by Henri Charrière.
