We wouldn’t normally introduce three counties with a description of where they are on a map of the world. With these three however, it’s necessary because even the savvy travellers amongst us can struggle to accurately name their location. For the record, they sit on the Atlantic coastline of South America in the north, between Venezuela and Brazil.
If you are after something a little different, somewhere that your peers are highly unlikely to have travelled to and somewhere that offers a rich cultural experience different to most, then these three destinations may be just the answer. They each provide indigenous culture with Amerindian history, along with colonial history - mainly Dutch, French and English. African slave labour was used across the region and a strong Indian influence is evident resulting from the plantations of sugar and other crops. Add the distinctly Caribbean feel and you have a melting pot like no other. Located in the Guiana Shield, a part of the Amazon basin, all have tropical rainforests, pristine rivers and wildlife unique to the region.
Collectively, they are often referred to as “The Guiana’s”. Suriname was formally Dutch Guiana, French Guiana is still a region or department of France (and technically, not a country) while Guyana itself was a British colony up until 1966. They are all relatively small countries – each substantially smaller than Victoria - with small populations.
Visit The Guiana’s for a truly unique cultural experience and bragging rights second to none!
