WHERE TO GO IN SOUTH & CENTRAL AMERICA
South America's smallest country is swathed in beautiful rainforest and filled with intriguing wildlife. All roads lead to lively Paramaribo, a cultural melting pot and a treasure trove of historic buildings.
Outside of the city, there's incredible birdlife at Bigi Pan and the Upper Suriname River is a wonderful getaway showcasing some of the Amazon's finest wildlife.
The only English speaking country in South America is a fascinating melting pot of Caribbean and Amerindian culture and is a haven for adventure.
Georgetown is Guyana’s beating heart whose highlights include a collection of wooden cathedrals, historic canals and colourful markets. But the real draw is the enormous rainforests that characterise the nation.
Although French Guiana is officially part of France, it's hard to think of two places more different.
One of the most surprising sights is the Guiana Space Centre, a major European spaceport and home to regular launches.
Visit Saint Laurent du Maroni for it's fascinating but tragic history as a 19th Century penal colony. The nearby Plage les Hattes is home to nesting turtles from March to August and is well worth a visit.

Top Tips From Our Experts
Kerry Ann Govier
Head to beautiful Patagonia. Fly to El Calafate and visit the spectacular Perito Moreno glacier; towering above the turquoise waters of Lago Argentino the colours are simply mesmerising, as is watching huge chunks of the glacier fracture off and crash into the water below. Take a boat trip and cruise along the glacier wall to get a close-up view of nature in action.
