Visit Guyana, Suriname or French Guiana, in combination to these lesser-visited South American countries. The Guiana Shield underlies Venezuela, Guyana (previously British Guiana), Suriname (previously Dutch Guiana) and French Guiana, as well as parts of Colombia, and Brazil.
Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana are hardly touched by tourism and inhabited by a huge variety of wildlife - including tapirs, giant river otters, monkeys, armadillos, and thousands of spectacular birds and butterflies (the Guyanese love to say they have the biggest of everything!).
At Pejego Tours we have a team of professionals with considerable knowledge and first-hand expertise in putting together tailor-made arrangements for the places you are planning to visit when on holiday in Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana. With the number of Dutch tourists declining each year—Suriname is a former colony of the Netherlands —the country is eager to tap into new markets, and North Americans are, geographically and financially, the demographic most likely to take a chance on the smallest sovereign country in South America.
Suriname and Guyana, are known for wooden colonial architecture from the British and the Dutch - the likes of which in Paramaribo are listed under UNESCO World Heritage That said, while walking among British and Dutch colonial structures in various states of (dis)repair crowding the streets in Georgetown and Paramaribo, we found a great number of modernist examples worth going out of the way for.
During your stay in Suriname you can visit local villages, walk around the island in the hope of meeting some of its furry inhabitants and learn about the medicinal plants, try to spot Caiman on a nighttime canoe trip, take a dip in the river in the rapids - a natural jacuzzi, relax on the island by the pool, spot the kingfishers on the banks of the river and enjoy the tranquility of the Amazon Rainforest. You will travel by minibus for approximately 190km to the port at Atjoni, we then hop on a boat on the Suriname river, deep into the rainforest where we will stay for two/three nights on our own private island!
With an Atlantic coastline in the northeast, Guyana is now the third-smallest country in South America after Suriname and Uruguay, the name Guyana “translating as Land of Many Waters”. Stunning landscapes, awesome biodiversity and charmingly rough-edged colonial history in the capital Georgetown give Guyana holidays a concentrated blast of South American draws. Enjoy the historic city of Georgetown, the famous Kaieteur waterfall, and Amerindians.
French Guiana, is an overseas department and region of France, on the north Atlantic coast of South America. The country can be divided into five natural regions; a narrow and fertile marshy plain along the Atlantic coast (low coastal plain) where most of the population lives; a white sand belt more inland (hilly sand and clay region), containing most of Guyana's mineral deposits; the dense rain forests (Forested Highland Region) in the southern; the dryer savannah areas in the south-west; and the smallest interior lowlands (interior savannah) consisting mostly of mountains that gradually rise to the Brazilian border. Because of the fact that French Guiana is an overseas department of France, it is now as much a part of the European Union as Berkshire or Bavaria; its highest legal authority is the Court of Justice in Strasbourg; and its currency, valid even in the Indian settlement of Pilakoupoupiaina on the Oyapock River, is the euro, the currency controlled by the European Central Bank in Frankfurt.
