Guyana is a kind of place that’s becoming increasingly rare in the world today; come and you’ll find untouched nature with amazing wildlife and birding experiences, rich culture and heritage, warm hospitality and a relaxing, Caribbean vibe. 90% of the population live along the coast, leaving the country’s lush interior untouched, and ripe for exploration. The capital Georgetown is steeped in history of one sort or another so much to explore there too.
Cricket is in the blood of every Guyanese and with the current success in Australia where the West Indies team finally beat Australia in a test match mostly due to a young man called Shamar Joseph it is even more popular. His name will go in the history books for his 7wicket haul in the second innings of the match. It is the first time in 27 years West Indies have beaten Australia.
Our MD Sara Malin visited in August 2013 in anticipation of matches in the country and despite the challenges in the country thoroughly enjoyed the visit and is confident many of you will too.
