Guyana is reputed to be the top eco-tourism destination in the world. Despite the pandemic, the country saw more than a 50% increase in tourist visits in 2021. No wonder why the tourism sector is Guyana’s second-largest earner in terms of money coming in from foreign customers at $24 billion in 2021.
What makes Guyana’s tourism tick?
It has everything that every tourist could ask for. Its coasts are lined with beautiful beaches and its geographical landscape is home to mountains, savannahs, waterfalls, and rainforests. It can offer an impressive itinerary that best serves adventure seekers as well as those who just want to relax and have fun – from hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, boating, rafting, horseback riding, tennis, and golf! It is the perfect getaway. The Kaieteur Falls alone, which is the largest free-fall waterfall in the world, has a lot of tourism potential to offer.
And the future of Guyana’s tourism is even brighter, especially since the Guyanese government is exerting a lot of effort to improve its tourism sector.
For one, it provides incentives to investors from favorable tax concessions and exemptions. In addition, the country has also prioritized infrastructure development projects such as road construction, expansion of port capacity, and development of world-class accommodation and amenities that could potentially skyrocket tourists’ visits to the country. Alongside this, the country has also ramped up the possible workforce complement as it focuses on tourism training of locals in the country.
