Guyana - Tourism, travel, and recreation

Guyana's scenery varies from the flat marshy coastal plain to the savannas, plateaus, and mountains of the interior; the 226-m (740-ft) Kaieteur Falls, four times as high as Niagara, is the country's most outstanding scenic attraction. Riding, hunting, fishing, and swimming are available in the southern savanna of the Rupununi. Cricket is the national sport.

Visitors from Commonwealth countries and the US need valid passports and return or onward tickets. Visitors from most other countries need both a passport and a visa. In 1998, there were 68,403 tourist arrivals in Guyana and tourism receipts totaled US $54 million. In 2002, the US Department of State estimated the cost of staying in Georgetown at US $198 per day.
