Kaieteur Falls, Guyana

Guyana

For those who seek adventure, nature, and wildlife, Guyana is an eco-tourism paradise. There’s a Caribbean vibe—friendly and welcoming—in this English-speaking country, as well as a healthy dose of outdoor activity, from trekking through Amazonian rainforests to seeking more than 815 bird species. Search for parrots, contingas, and white-winged potoo, and keep your eyes peeled for jaguars, giant river otters, and massive anteaters. During treks through rugged mountainscapes and wild rainforests, you’ll meet warm Amerindian people as they make their way to and from their farms. Kaieteur Falls is a particular highlight here, in the midst of an ancient jungle; a truly off-the-beaten-path marvel for the nature-lover, the falls grow up to 400 feet wide depending on the season.
