Gap Year in Guyana

Guyana might not be the first country which comes to mind when planning a gap year but there are programs available to join here. Guyana is located in North-Eastern South America, it is blessed with beautiful beaches, exotic wildlife and nature. Despite being one of the smallest countries in South America there is a lot of things to pack into a gap year. The beaches in this country are really stunning and mostly deserted, this is a country which hasn't been over visited by tourists and because of this the natural habitats are in amazing condition.
