Guyana

Officially known as the Cooperative Republic of Guyana, and previously the British Guiana before 1966, the state lies in the northern coast of South America. Culturally speaking, Guyana belongs to the Anglophone Caribbean. Guyana boasts of untouched forests that are being mined by the government for their ecotourism potential. Aside from this, the capital Georgetown, with its previous colonial glory, is also a sight to behold. Its Caribbean air makes nightlife more exciting and distinct. Its line of restaurants and markets offer tourists fresh shopping and dining retreats. Further into Georgia, tourists can discover a mini Amazon, with opportunities to interact with wildlife and view them in their natural habitat.
