Photos: Great views of Guyana

Today, February 23, marks Republic Day in the South American nation of Guyana. The day is celebrated with a carnival known as Mashramani that is as colourful as any other Caribbean festival, if not more so.

Guyana is one of those places that doesn’t get a lot of love from tourists, but anyone’s who’s ever been is enchanted by the dynamism of the people who live there. Happy Mash, everyone!

Owmigoy, it's almost advantage! #tequila #sash #guyana #guyanese #mashramani

Peru’s Boiling River is the world’s longest thermal river

The world’s largest thermal river is thought to be in Peru’s Amazonian rain forest. The “Boiling River” flows hot for more than six kilometres and is as wide as a two-lane road. Its temperatures are hot enough to cook animals that fall into it.

Photos: Excellent views of Ecuador

Ecuador is recovering from a devastating earthquake from earlier this month which has prompted some tourists to cancel their trips to the South American country. That’s probably the worst thing you could do. The best way to help them recover is to visit and spend your tourist dollars in order to aid their economy.
