The magazine, which is available free of cost can also be viewed online at www.guyanawhereandwhatonline.com. Madhoo-Nascimento said the 20,000 copies of the magazine produced will soon have to be increased since copies are usually finished by the sixth to seventh month of the year.

He said Guyana’s tourism industry is developing. He pointed out the increased number of yachts that visited Guyana’s shores last year and further said that for 2014 thus far, around eight yachts have visited. Ali said the possibility of deep sea sports fishing is also being looked at as a tourism attraction.
