1. Guyana & Suriname
Few bother - or dare - to venture into the northeast corner of South America. When told you’re going to Guyana, even your best-traveled friends may offer quizzical stares or uncertain mutterings about the risks associated with “that part of Africa.” But travellers who want to leave the tourist circuit far behind in search of genuine, personal, eye-popping adventure are amply rewarded for their efforts to set foot in this remarkable, lost land.

It is a heavily forested country covered by large areas of biological diversity. Most of Suriname’s small population speaks Dutch and lives in the coastal area in and around the capital city.
