Guyana might be a small country in South America, but it shouldn't be overlooked by travelers seeking unique experiences. With easy access from Brazil and Venezuela, mark it down on your travel schedule to experience this tropical paradise.
On the northwestern shore of Guyana lies Shell Beach. This 90 mile long beach is truly unique to South America and perhaps the entire world—there are countless shells which wash up along the coastline. This is truly a sight to behold.
Iwokrama Rain Forest
The Iwokrama rain forest is a huge swath of nearly untouched land in Guyana, spanning almost one million acres. This huge national preserve can be visited, and travelers will be able to enjoy tours—both on the ground and in the canopy over a series of bridges.
In the south of Guyana are the Rupununi Savannahs. These are the largest open savannahs in the entire world. This huge swath of land has rivers, mountains, and villages of the native Amerindian population.
