GUYANA, the only English-speaking country in South America, is situated on the northeast coast of the continent on the Atlantic Ocean. Guyana formerly called British Guiana, but it achieved its independence in 1966. Before becoming a Crown colony, it was largely under the control of the Dutch West India Company.
The Dutch were responsible for beginning an extensive land reclamation program along the coast, and, to this day, there is a narrow belt of fertile land with rich alluvial soils, protected from the sea by dikes and dams.

Guiana, FRENCH GUIANA, or GUYANE, as the name suggests, remains an overseas department of France, and the mother country heavily subsidizes its economy. It is bounded to the south and east by Brazil and the west by Suriname. The coastal belt is a narrow strip of marshy mangrove swamps, but the land gradually rises inland towards the Tumac-Humac Mountains. These straddle the Brazilian border but are of modest height by South American standards.
Behind the coast, there is some savannah, but 90 percent of French Guiana covered with hot, humid, tropical forests that are thinly populated by people but inhabited by South American jungle animals such as tapirs, monkeys, anteaters, jaguars, ocelots, caimans and exotic birds.
Off the coast, lie the lies de Salut (Salvation Islands) and Devil’s Island, the latter having a particularly notorious place in the country’s history as a prison settlement.
The climate is tropical, with heavy rainfall.
