About Guyana

The country is part of the Guianas, a region in the north-eastern part of the continent on the Guiana Shield, an old stable geological formation that forms a portion of the northern coast. The Guianas are bounded by the Orinoco, Negro, and Amazon rivers and the Atlantic Ocean. It includes Guyana, Suriname, and  French Guiana.

Guyana's area is somewhat smaller than that of the United Kingdom, or slightly smaller than that of the U.S. state of Idaho. Large areas of Guyana are covered by dense rain forests (Forested Highland Region) in the southern part of the country. Most of Guyana's population (90%) lives in a narrow and fertile marshy plain along the Atlantic coast in the east of the country. The four Hinterland regions, which occupy more than two-thirds of the total land area is still largely unoccupied.

The country has a population of 748,000 people (Census 2012). Capital and largest city is Georgetown (pop. 192,000). Spoken languages are English (official), the vast majority of the population speaks Guyanese Creole, an English based Creole, Indo-Guyanese people speak also Hindi.
