An explorer’s paradise of indigenous communities and unparalleled jungle wilderness. Travel to Guyana and be rewarded with a pristine Amazon adventure.

Why travel to Guyana

From Guyana’s dramatic coastline, verdant jungle spreads south, consuming everything in sight and hiding spectacular treasures, from the world’s highest single drop waterfall and indigenous communities to unusual animals such as giant otters and myriad bird species.
Teeming with beauty and opportunity, it’s no wonder Guyana has enticed many an explorer and writer over the centuries – indeed, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle based his 1912 science fiction classic The Lost World on this otherworldly destination.

Once part of the British Empire, and therefore the only English-speaking country in Latin America, Guyana makes an incredible destination for curious travellers. Visit Guyana and discover this unique place with expert guides who will pass on their knowledge of the wilderness, cities, customs, and culture. Whether it is exploring the coastal sugar plantations and their complex history, the infamous site of the Jonestown massacre or heading into the wild interior to revel in pristine nature, a journey through Guyana is one you will never forget.

One of the most delicious Guyana food dishes you’ll encounter in the region is Pepperpot. The dish is a stew made of beef, lamb, or pork. Pepper and cinnamon are also added to the meal with other traditional seasonings.
