Guyana Vacation, Tours, Travel Packages & Experiences
Guyana is in north-eastern South America. It has an Atlantic Ocean coastline and lies between Suriname to the east and Venezuela to the west with Brazil to the south. It is the third smallest country in South America when on a Guyana vacation.
Guyana is a country of exceptional natural beauty and a wonderful combination of the Caribbean and South America. It stretches 720 kilometres/450 miles along its long Atlantic coastline. There is inland, dense equatorial forest and broad savannah.
The picturesque capital and primary port is Georgetown, a city of fine colonial buildings and broad, tree-lined boulevards. The striking wooden architecture is reminiscent of Guyana's centuries as a Dutch, and then a British colony. Don't miss the imposing St. George's Cathedral, reputed to be the tallest wooden building in the world.
Flashes of scarlet, yellow and blue burst through the forest's intense green as macaws fly like arrows across a clearing in the canopy. Toucans, and the awesome Harpy Eagle, swoop through the trees, while the beautiful but elusive Guyana Cock-of-the-Rock lingers around the waters of Kaieteur Falls. More than 700 indigenous species of birds adorn Guyana's forests.
The tumbling rivers and dense rainforests of Guyana are filled with extraordinary natural sights. Kaieteur Falls, where the 400-foot wide Potaro River plunges 741 feet downward from the Pakaraima Plateau, is one of the world's great waterfalls. The magnificence of Kaieteur stands beyond any comparison in its majesty and sheer size. You can also on Guyana vacations visit the striking beauty of the Orinduik Falls, the Marshall Falls, the Kaieteur Gorge and remote Mount Roraima - the inspiration for Conan Doyle's Lost World.
