The most iconic tourist feature by far in Guyana is the amazing Kaieteur Falls located in the vast interior along the Potaro River. Therefore, it is only natural that my first full length post should be dedicated to the country’s number one attraction.
I will be writing a more descriptive post about my experience in the weeks to come with tips and information, but this one is a photo and video essay for your viewing pleasure. I think you can see why the World Waterfall Database has Kaieteur listed number two, one ahead of Africa’s Victoria Falls, in the world behind only Iguazu Falls on the Argentinean and Brazilian border.
After seeing Kaieteur, I am motivated to see Iguazu as it is hard to imagine a more awesome sight featuring water and gravity. Guyana is currently at the peak of their dry season, so the falls are even more impressive during the rainy season. Kaieteur is five times higher than Niagara Falls on the U.S. Canadian border for those who need a little perspective on the awesomeness of this natural wonder.
