Guyana was the next stop on my journey across South America. All three “Guyanas” are sooo different. While French Guyana is the most developed and has (by far) the best food, the Surinamese people were extremely kind and generous. Guyana has the most beautiful scenery. If you want to be stunned by natural beauty, please visit Guyana. It is truly superb.
The highlight of my trip in Guyana was of course, Kaieteur Falls. I had two options: Bus/Hike or Fly. I made the mistake of flying. The problem with flying to Kaieteur Falls is that they force you to buy a round-trip ticket. The time you have at the falls is only about 2 hours. And I had heard that they shepherd you around like cattle. So, I purchased a round-trip ticket, went on the 2 hour tour, and “missed” my flight. They HIGHLY discourage this. You are suppose to tell the park before arriving, and there was no guarantee that another plane would come to take me back. But I took the risk!
