The most interesting and beautiful tourist sites in Guyana
Photos, reviews, descriptions, and links to maps
Guyana is not hugely popular with tourists. Its capital is called a criminal and dangerous city, and some of the natural beauties are not yet accessible by tourist routes. Most of Guyana is covered with forests. The country has many waterfalls, savannahs and rivers. The Kaieteur Falls are 5 times higher than the Niagara Falls, and the wide and picturesque Orinduik Falls are suitable for swimming.
Though Georgetown has a notoriety, you can see amazing buildings in this city. The lighthouse, university, cathedrals and temples are very colourful and pretty, there is a lot to see in the city. Decent accommodation in the city can be found for little money. The climate in Guyana is very humid and it is warm all year round. That is why there are incredible forests and quite a rich natural world. You can explore it at the Georgetown Zoo or Shell Beach, where sea turtles lay their eggs.
One of Guyana’s most recognisable sites is Mount Roraima. The climb to its summit alone is worth flying to this country. A huge plateau at an altitude of 2810 metres, shrouded in clouds, produces an indelible effect on tourists. Even at the foot of the mountain looks interesting and colourful.
Guyana has a huge number of natural attractions that are worth seeing. And if you put aside stereotypes and be careful, you can have a lot of fun walking around the capital and exploring its streets.
