Introducing Guyana

Guyana, the only English-speaking country in South America is a cultural fusion, with Amerindians, Africans, Indians, Europeans, and Chinese people, resulting in a remarkable blend of faith, culture, festivities, and gastronomy found nowhere else in South America. Located on the northeast coast and surrounded by Suriname to the southeast, Venezuela to the west, Brazil to the south, and the Atlantic to the north, it is a small but spectacular destination to visit.

A journey to Guyana offers wonderfully diverse wildlife experiences where you can witness a jaguar, huge anteater, giant river otters, eight species of monkey, turtles, snakes, more than 800 species of birds, such as the harpy eagle, one of the world’s biggest eagles. Discover amazing wilderness and unspoilt natural landscapes on your adventures in Guyana.

Top Locations in Guyana

Kaieteur Falls
This is one of the world's most incredible spectacles, five times higher than Niagara Falls and considered to be the world's largest single drop waterfall due to its volume of water, it is a spectacular sight to experience. There are various locations from which to observe the great waterfalls, though don’t miss out on exploring the nearby region and its distinct atmosphere.
Guyana's capital city, with a population of roughly 240,000 people, is a key location to explore. Its British and Dutch past has influenced some lovely colonial structures; however, many are in disrepair. With a significant Caribbean influence, you have a delightful cultural blend, which is evident as you explore the city. The dazzling white St George's Church, one of the world's biggest wooden constructions, is among the top attractions.
Iwokrama Canopy Walkway
The Iwokrama Canopy Walkway is located in Guyana's southwestern heartland, near the southern edge of the Iwokrama Reserve. Four suspension bridges connect three different levels, with the highest point rising more than 30 metres above ground level. Several of Guyana's 840+ species can be found on display at the Canopy Walkway. The walkway is an exciting journey into the forest that provides travellers with an excellent view of the landscape and the bird species that inhabit it.
Boat ride exploration
Due to its abundance of water, Guyana is best explored by boat. A boat trip along the Rewa and Rupununi rivers is essential to take in the native flora and fauna as well as the tranquilly and grandeur of the area.
Shell Beach
At Shell Beach on Guyana's Atlantic coast, you can see four endangered species of sea turtles, including the leatherback, hawksbill, green, and the olive ridley turtles. Turtles use the beach as a breeding location and come there between February and August to lay their eggs.
