Now the third-smallest country in South America after Suriname and Uruguay it is also one of the least discovered countries and a powerhouse of nature. It is among the most popular destination for wildlife and adventure travellers and the abundance of cultural and natural sights, the lack of other travellers and it’s general ‘off the beaten track’ vibe help make Guyana a rather unmissable stop.
Guyana is made up Amerindians, Africans, Indians, Europeans, and Chinese and all this has led to Guyana becoming a fascinating mixture of religion, culture and cuisine that you can’t find anywhere else in South America and what makes it even fascinating is Guyana is South American’s only English-speaking country so communication with the locals is never a problem.
Visitors love to stay in community-run lodges rather than international chain hotels, allowing themselves for some pretty sensational immersion in local village life. There’s nothing quite like learning some traditional rainforest knowledge from a native. Guyana only receives 3,000 tourists a year so, places like Kaieteur Falls is less known to the outer world and is the world’s tallest single-drop waterfall (five times the height of Niagara Falls).
A land of thick rainforest, expansive savannas, and lively Caribbean culture, Guyana is becoming more and more notable for its adventure and eco-tourism opportunities. Sightseeing in Guyana ranges from touring the colonial-era architectural gems of the historic capital, to hiking the verdant forest trails. Scenic waterfalls and mountaintops, laidback ranches, an array of tropical wildlife, and delicious Creole fusion cuisine await you on your Guyana holiday.
