Guyana is one of the few Caribbean countries that are part of South America. Located on the northeastern coast of the continent, the country is bordered by Venezuela to the northwest, Suriname to the east and Brazil to the south. The country’s capital city, Georgetown, is located along the coast, on the Caribbean Sea. It is also the main area visited by tourists.
Approximately 80% of Guyana is still covered by forest, and it has one of the highest levels of biodiversity in the world. However, most visitors come for business reasons, mainly for gold mining, offshore oil and gas drilling, or for agricultural opportunities. Regardless of your reason for visiting, getting travel insurance for your Guyana trip is important.

Places of interest in Guyana
Guyana provides limited tourist attractions for visitors, as most come to the country on business. However, Kaieteur Falls is a must-visit, as you travel to the waterfall by plane and get to see it in all its glory from the air. The Iwokrama Canopy Walkway consists of four interconnected bridges that provide an opportunity to birdwatch and take in nature from an interesting vantage point. If you enjoy historical architecture, then consider visiting St. George’s Cathedral. Other attractions in Georgetown worth checking out include Stabroek Market, Guyana Botanical Gardens, Guyana Zoological Park and day tours of the Guyana wilderness.
