Guyana is one of the least visited destinations in South America, but there are more and more reasons to explore it. Be prepared for some surprises if you break the mould, accept the challenges, and head into Guyana's untamed interior. The same size as Britain, Guyana has a population of less than 750,000, most living in Georgetown or along the coast.
Guyana is nature at its most intense, largely untouched but for a scattering of isolated Amerindian communities in the rainforests in the centre of the country and a handful of old families tackling huge ranches on natural savanna lands to the south.
Guyana's infrastructure has been very poor, with just one road, mostly unpaved, serving the length of the country. Things are starting to ease, and what was once almost inaccessible is now coming more within reach. Accommodation for travellers is getting better, though still mostly rustic. The difficulties of travelling in the interior mean that costs can be high, but the rewards are high too.
All this simplicity, all this untamed nature, all this distance from busy lives lived on the rest of the planet makes Guyana something very special. For the right person, it is a place to fall in love with.
