Guyana

Welcome to Guyana

For many years a luckless country left to one side by the rest of the world, Guyana’s littleknown interior is starting to attract intrepid travellers and those in search of wildlife.

One of the least visited destinations in South America, Guyana is in many ways a complete contrast from Trinidad & Tobago. Just a short flight from Port of Spain it can be efficiently added on to your time on the islands, or visited on its own.

Be prepared for some surprises if you break the mould, accept the challenges, and head into its untamed interior. The same size as Britain, Guyana has a population of less than 750,000, most living in Georgetown or along the coast. The interior is empty but for a few Amerindian communities and ranchers on the savanna lands. Guyana's infrastructure is very poor, with just one road, mostly unpaved, serving the length of the country. Flying in a small aircraft, bumping along in a 4WD or travelling by river are the only options for getting about. With few exceptions, the level of accommodation is at best rustic and at worst very basic. The difficulties of travelling in the interior mean that costs can be high.
