Its star attraction is the awesome Kaieteur Falls - five times higher than Niagara and, thanks to its lush rainforest location, immeasurably more impressive. The spectacular Kaieteur Falls is the world's highest free-flowing waterfall with a sheer drop of 741 feet (226m), and is 822 feet (251m) high. At the peak of rainy season the falls stretch 400 feet (122m) across. Guyana is unlike any other country on the continent. For one, it is the only English-speaking nation, a legacy of its time as a British colony when it was known as British Guiana. It is also has a distinctly Creole culture, and enjoys cricket as the national sport, making this a more Caribbean destination than its neighbours. Its capital, Georgetown, is famous for its 19th-century wooden houses on stilts and it’s gently decaying colonial architecture which adds to its unique character.
Inland, however, Guyana takes on the tropical jungle and Amazonian character of a true South American country. Here you will find ample trekking, biking and other eco-tourism activities in the hilly plains around the Pakaraima Mountains and a multitude of rivers to raft on and fish in. The area is also home to over 120 Amerindian tribes, some of whom still live in relative isolation, whilst others have moved to developed settlements along the coastline. Guyana is truly a fascinating destination and property investment opportunity which, in spite of its corrupt and chaotic politicians, is still a great place to live, as it has so much to offer in terms, on so many levels. The roads are bad, crime is high and prices relatively steep, and yet for visitors and residents alike, little Guyana lives large and long in the memory.
