Full of unexpected quirks and fascinating traditions, many will agree that Guyana is an amazing place to grow up.

From Georgetown’s charming tree-lined streets to the stunning, rain-forest that dominates much of the landscape, here are 3 things that make Guyana a truly unique country:

Guyana is in the Caribbean?!

Though geographically located in South America and bordered by Venezuela, Suriname and Brazil, Guyana is identified as a Caribbean country.

Not only does this make it the largest Caribbean country in terms of landmass, it also makes it one of the most diverse.

Guyana adopts much of the culture and tradition of the Caribbean but brings with it its own unique landscape and customs.

While it may not harbor the pristine, sandy beaches of many of its counterparts, what it does offer is much more in terms of dizzying waterfalls, intense wildlife and stunning plains.

People speak English

The national language is of this nation is English with a small number of the population also speaking Creole.

This comes to a surprise to many who assume that every nation in South America speaks Spanish.

But despite neighboring countries speaking Spanish, Guyana has maintained English as it's national language making it a country that really stands out in South America. 

Small numbers

Despite technically having the largest landmass of all the Caribbean countries, Guyana still has one of the smallest populations.

There is only 799,613 Guyanese that mostly live in and around a relatively small strip of land along the coast.

Though it may be small in numbers, Guyana boasts a nation of proud locals who are loyal and steeped in tradition.
