Tourism in Guyana
We are delighted that you have chosen to spend some time with us in our site. We hope we can serve as a treasured repository of information, showcasing much we do, how much we can offer, in order to make your stay the most memorable, ever.
2016 holds a lot of optimism for our tourism sector as we seek to make ‘Guyana – South America Undiscovered’, the destination of choice. If you are looking for a one of a kind destination full of adventure, hospitality and unique experiences, then ‘Guyana – South America Undiscovered' is the place to come!!!
Guyana’s natural environment is a jewel in the crown of South America and the Caribbean. Eighty percent of this vast and largely uninhabited wilderness is blanketed in thick virgin Amazon rainforest – home to hundreds of species of bird and mammals. Our rainforest lodges offer the opportunity to relax in comfort while savoring the delights of the natural environment right on your doorstep. In the south of the country the forest opens to rolling savannah with a completely different natural environment, season and personality.
Guyana’s rivers and waterfalls are legendary. The mighty Essequibo River, its length punctuated by 365 islands and graced by sparkling white sandy beaches and picturesque resorts, is an adventure by itself and a perfect base to moor your yacht and explore. Kaieteur Falls, the world’s highest single drop waterfall defies description and is a must for all visitors.
Amidst the splendor, don’t forget to eat! Our culinary delights reflect the rich culture heritage of the six peoples that make up our nation and will appease your every whim and fancy. Make sure to keep a watchful eye for festivals and cultural activities where you can celebrate with our people and share in some much deserved fun and revelry. Some of these events include the Rupunini Music Festival, the Lethem Rodeo and Bartica Regatta at Easter and the Guyana Festival which is held in August.
Whatever you choose to do, I am sure you will take the memories home with you, memories that will make your heart warm, keep your smile bright and leave you longing for more of Guyana.
And, remember to tell all of your friends!
