Why Guyana: A country of exceptional natural beauty, Guyana offers pristine forest, abundant wildlife, spectacular mountains and beautiful rivers. Tourism is relatively new here, but there is a strong emphasis on eco-tourism and partnerships with indigenous Amerindian communities.
When to Go: Guyana can be visited year round; however during the two wet seasons (December-January and May-mid August) explorations of the rainforests can be severely hampered. To experience Guyana’s waterfalls at their best, visit towards the end of the wet seasons.
Combine With: Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia or Ecuador.
Getting There: Visitors flying in to Guyana arrive at Cheddi Jagan International Airport, south of the capital, Georgetown. It is also possible to cross from Boa Vista in Brazil into the Guyanese border town of Lethem.
