With a world renounced waterfall the Kaiteur Falls that plunges to 822 feet five time the drop of Niagara Falls, and offers yet over 250 other falls that are similarly impressive. Depicting it historical heritage Guyana is a culturally diverse nation as can be seen in its 18th and 19th century structures, tree-lined avenues and lilly-covered waterways.
