South America on a Shoestring - Guyana (Chapter)
This is the Guyana chapter from Lonely Planet’s South America on a Shoestring guidebook.
Find authentic raw adventure in Guyana, which is becoming one of South America’s premier ecotourism destinations. Georgetown, the crumbling colonial capital, is distinctly Caribbean with a rocking nightlife and great places to eat. The interior is more Amazonian with its Amerindian communities and unparalleled wildlife-viewing.
