Summary

Discover the Guianas on this adventurous tour of Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana, ending in Brazil’s culturally diverse Amazonian city of Belem. In Guyana – South America’s only English speaking country, compare the capital Georgetown with the country’s wild interior, with a stay at an Amerindian run lodge. Next, head to the mighty but little-known Kaieteur Falls, one of the most beautiful and powerful waterfalls in the world and five times the height of Niagara.

From Guyana, fly into Suriname, a region teeming with tropical rainforest. In Paramaribo, enjoy a sunset boat trip in search of dolphins and visit former Dutch colonial coffee and cocoa plantations. Then continue by motorized canoe along the Upper Suriname River to a remote rainforest lodge and Maroon community. Next, travel to French Guiana and visit Devil’s Island, which played a central role in French history when it was used as a transit point, first for explorers, then slaves and later for political prisoners and convicts. Papillion claimed to have been held here for two years of solitary confinement. Onward to Cayenne, the main city in French Guiana, visit the Sunday market at Cacao a H’mong town. Finally, fly to Belem in Brazil for a gastronomic tour of this Amazonian city.

Note: To travel in The Guianas is to make adventurous journeys, often by riverboat, rough roads, and small planes and to stay in comfortable but not high-end lodges where your tourist dollar often goes straight back to the communities. It is at the crossroads of the Caribbean and South America.

Day 1 ARRIVE IN GEORGETOWN

tall-white-painted-wood-church

Arrive at Georgetown’s international airport and be greeted by a professional guide, and transfer to the hotel in the city.

Georgetown is the capital of Guyana and sits on the Atlantic Coast at the mouth of the Demerara River. Here, find fading British and Dutch colonial architecture, tree-lined avenues, Hindu temples next to mosques and wooden churches, West Indian markets, rum shops, and reggae music. The food of Guyana reflects its ethnic diversity, from Amerindian cassava bread and pepperpot to duck curries washed down with rum and the Caribbean cook up rice served with fry fish and ground provisions – the root vegetables that were grown and cooked by slaves in their communally-owned grounds on the plantations.

Note: This Guianas tour is based on starting on a Tuesday to fit with the days of operation of certain flights as well as market days, however, the itinerary can be customized if travelers wish to start on a different day.
