What is really needed to make tourism a success in Guyana? – THAG President weighs in

THAG Head, Shaun McGrath

What prevents Guyana from achieving the same level of success in the tourism industry as its Caribbean counterparts? Is it really the absence of blue seas and white sand beaches? Is it the high crime rate and poor hospitality services? Or is the problem, way more complex than it appears on the surface?

President of the Tourism and Hospitality Association of Guyana (THAG) Shaun McGrath recently weighed in on this issue during an informative session at the inaugural business summit of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI).

This Too Shall Pass – By by Aishwarya Shah

A great article from one of the followers of the Guyanese Online blog.

Guyana – Rupununi-: Nappi, a potential tourist site

Nappi – A resident prepares farine

– named after man who escaped a tribal war in Brazil

Karu’ku and Nan’pi were the names of two men, that escaped tribal wars in Brazil, and entered the then Guiana some 100 years ago. They were among the first settlers who entered the forest, leaving forever their mark on the expansive savannahs of the Rupununi in Region Nine.

Karu’ku became Kanuku, bequeathing his name to the majestic range of mountains that divide the Rupununi savannahs in two. Nan’pi became Nappi, his name was given to the beautiful Macushi Indigenous community sitting in the hills just outside the shadow of the Kanuku mountains, in Central Rupununi, Region Nine.      Continue reading
