The Caribbean Tourism Organization also named two winners for its 2011 Caribbean Excellence honor.

The first, Surama Village Eco-Lodge in Guyana, bills itself as a "community-based eco-tourism experience" where visitors can canoe on the Burro Burro River, relax in the hammock camp, and hike Surama Mountain while experiencing the traditional culture of the Makushi people.
