Guyana

Guyana is a country on the northern coast of South America, just north of the Equator and a part of the western part of the wider region of Guiana. The country is bordered to the east by Suriname, to the south and west by Brazil, to the west by Venezuela and to the north by the Atlantic Ocean. It is the third smallest country in South America and approximately the size of Great Britain or Idaho.

The official name is the Co-operative Republic of Guyana. Guyana is an Amerindian word meaning Land of Many Waters. The country is mostly characterized by vast unspoiled rain forests dissected by numerous rivers, creeks and beautiful waterfalls, notably Kaieteur Falls on the Potaro River, at 741ft high, is considered one of the highest single drop waterfalls in the world. Guyana's tepuis are famous for being the inspiration for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 1912 novel The Lost World. The country enjoys a friendly multicultural society, high floral and faunal biodiversity, prize-winning rum, wooden architecture, and Demerara sugar.
