Tourism in Guyana

Guyana, meaning “land of many waters”, has long been recognised for its natural beauty and spleandour. Attractions range from the towering Kaieteur falls on the Potaro river to the intriguing 19th century stilted wooden houses of the capital. Guyana’s dense rainforests, winding rivers and vast savannah allure adventurous travellers, hoping to explore, camp, trek and perhaps spot one of the country’s illustrious but elusive jaguars. White water rafting, horseback trekking and game fishing are also popular activities with the more adventurous tourist. The biodiversity of the country’s forests draws nature lovers from around the world with the chance to see some bizarre and wonderful species. Highlights include the Golden Frog, the Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock, the Green and Red Macaw, the Red Howler Monkey and the Kaieteur Lizard. Turtles can be seen nesting at Almond beach between April and August.
