I was thinking of living there, because it is the only English speaking country in South America and is free from earthquakes and hurricanes.

First I guess I would need a source of passive income or online source of income from the US.

How feasible is it in Guyana to buy some acres of land to live a self sufficient life? Or in Brazil?

I would say similar to a town of the same size in Brazil. You need to understand that the North of Brazil, Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana, in my view, are still "no man's land". I would consider it similar to the American Wild West in the 1800's.

There is a lot of conflict between Natives, gold miners, farmers and there is a lot of drugs, human trafficking, corruption, it is a very uncivilized part of the world overall!

I am sure you could find some cheap land there and you could probably live OK in Guyana but I would do a lot of research before going into something that.

I have thought about buying some land in the state of Roraima, it was very cheap but you get what you pay for, it is very isolated, the infra-structure is poor, local police is very corrupt and it is not uncommon for people to take justice into their own hands.

Dude, I just bought some acres in the state of Goiás ( near the town of Uruana) . Believe me, you'll not regret! Besides, Portuguese is something you can learn.

How much did it cost? How long does it take to learn Portuguese?

Well that depends on the size of what you want to buy. I think you'll be speaking Lusitania language in two years.
