Country Description


Guyana, a country on South America’s North Atlantic coast, is defined by its dense rainforest. English-speaking, with strong traditions of cricket and calypso music, it's culturally connected to the Caribbean region. Its capital, Georgetown, is known for its British colonial architecture, including tall, painted-timber St. George’s Anglican Cathedral. A large clock marks the facade of Stabroek Market, a popular source of local goods.
