Be careful. I worked for 3 weeks in Guyana last year and it was one of the scariest places I have visited. There is no rule of law. I am a journalist and the local embassies warned me not to come. Kidnappings of foreigners are commonplace, violence is also common.

You can go for days or weeks and everything is great, then...

So just be careful. We had an escort who carried a gigantic gun, which helps. They are beautiful places (bloody hot) but Guyana, in particular, is a worms nest of nastiness.

Must be why it's never touted as a tourist hotspot.

Always wondered..
