Written by gaytourism

Guyana Tourism Authority, the official Tourism Board of “Destination Guyana”, has taken a step to reach out to potential visitors from the United States and Canada.

Guyana is positioned as the next must-see destination for travelers. With daily non-stop flights already available from New York, Miami and Toronto, and it being the only English speaking country in South America, tourists can experience vibrant indigenous culture, rich history and an incredibly hospitable and friendly people in the language both parties know best. An irresistible combination of natural beauty, pristine primary rainforest, world-class waterfalls and amazing wildlife will satisfy any social media feed. Visiting vibrant indigenous communities and undeveloped beaches; attending festivals, rodeos, regattas and carnivals; and participating in 4×4 safaris and bird watching are just a handful of the possibilities to provide the hungry North American traveler with no shortage of stimuli.

North America is one of our strongest markets with a travel culture yearning for authentic culture and nature/adventure experiences. Guyana is in a prime position to provide that!” – said Brian Mullis, Director of Guyana Tourism Authority.

“We are thrilled by the opportunity to work with Destination Guyana to promote this paradise for nature lovers, adventure seekers, and avid eco-tourists to the North American travel market. We anticipate an enthusiastic and warm embrace of Guyana, the undiscovered gem of South America.” – said Jane Behrend, President, Emerging Destinations. The agency added Guyana to their list of regions and countries they represent in the U.S.

Largely unknown in the US and Canada, Guyana is a small South American country that represents six ethnicities and a rich Amerindian culture. Bordered by Brazil, Suriname and Venezuela, Guyana is part of the revered Guiana Shield, one of the world’s most biodiverse regions that includes many endemic species and South America’s ‘Land of the Giants.’ Guyana possesses Atlantic beaches to the north, staggering mountain ranges to the west, never-ending savannahs to the south and 18% of the world’s tropical forests to boot. It’s an untapped playground for explorers and adventure seekers.

The Guyana Tourism Authority (GTA) is a semi-autonomous governmental organization responsible for developing and promoting sustainable tourism in Guyana through collaboration with sister agencies and the tourism private sector in order to maximize local socio-economic and conservation outcomes and improve the visitors’ experience. The GTA is focused on Guyana becoming recognized locally and internationally as a premier destination for protecting its natural and cultural heritage, providing authentic experiences, and maximizing local economic benefits.
