Guyana Travel Guide: 397 reviews and 640 photos

Formerly British Guiana, Guyana member of the Commonwealth of Nations. Is located on the northeast shores of South America. English is spoken.
Because of crime, It is recommended that you travel with an organized tour or with someone who lives there. Take a trip with the ferry down the Berbice river or the Demerara or the Essequibo river. The connections are pretty good and its a good way to get further into the country.
You will see Guyana's rain forest creatures: lizards, iguanas colourful birds, snakes and maybe even a bush tiger. Centrepiece of all this natural beauty is Kaieteur Falls, five times as high as Niagara and noted for its shimmering rainbows in the mist and sunshine of the jungle.

    Hi Bianchi, I met many interesting people in Guyana during my stay in the early 70's.. Searched everywhere for old photos of the George Hotel in Georgetown, I guess it's long gone - Gee, I could tell some stories about this place! Best wishes, Rafe

    You clearly love this country, making your page a pleasure to read. Especially like having a book suggestion - it's on my winter reading list.

    that country must always be in your heart of hearts, Sylvia! Seems to be very special, esp. for a gypsy-born-bes! Love falls but not that bobbing boat!!
