The Best Caribbean Island for Nature Lovers

Guyana is one of the most undiscovered Caribbean destinations that people are now being encouraged to explore.

National Geographic (UK) selected 35 countries as the best destinations in the world for 2023 and beyond. They ranked those 35 countries “across five categories — adventure, culture, nature, family and community”.

Only two Caribbean countries made the list, Guyana and Trinidad & Tobago. Guyana along with Trinidad & Tobago can be happy about their rankings. They are both beautiful Caribbean countries.

Trinidad & Tobago secured the 3oth spot as the best family-friendly destination (in the Caribbean). While Guyana placed in the top fifteen spots under the category of nature.

Guyana ranked number 13 of 35 destinations. That is a great feat and accomplishment for Guyana. While it is not geographically in the Caribbean, Guyana is always bottled with other Caribbean islands.

How to decide which Caribbean island to visit? Here is what the National Geographic (UK) article “Best of the world: 35 destinations for 2023 and beyond” said about the ecotourism destination Guyana.

“13. Guyana A new route from British Airways shines a light on one of South America’s smaller nations

Thick Rainforests, sprawling savannahs, magical mountain ranges and epic rivers — Guyana may be one of South America’s smaller nations, but it packs a big punch for nature-lovers, and from March 2023, will be connected by British Airways flights from London Gatwick (via St Lucia).

Go to get truly off-grid. Similar in size to the UK, Guyana is home to fewer than a million people, and river, off-road or air transport are often the only routes into the heart of it all. Natural highlights range from jaguars stalking dense forests to giant anteaters on the savannahs, harpy eagles in the skies and wow-moments like Kaieteur Falls, one of the world’s highest single drop waterfalls (and twice as high as Victoria Falls). The number of eco-tourism experiences and community-run lodges is growing, too.”

Guyana is a true emerging travel destination that more people should know about.
