When Do You Want To Go?

Fusing a distinctly Caribbean flair with a contemporary South American ambience, Guyana’s capital is an intoxicating city with characterful streets and a contagious rhythm. Many will be tempted to use Georgetown as a pitstop before venturing into the wildlife-filled interior of the country but an extended stay in the capital is essential for those who want to peel back the layers of Guyana’s intriguing heritage and culture. The city is perched idyllically on the Demerara River that feeds directly into the Atlantic and was once an important trading gateway for the continent. As a direct consequence, Georgetown developed quickly and colourful and elegant colonial architecture can be observed in abundance.

Full days can easily be spent exploring its charming tree-lined avenues and myriad of canals or in one of the many museums or churches that you will find smattered sporadically across the city. Visiting the colourful marketplace in the morning is a wonderful experience, as is an exploration of the verdant botanical gardens. A river cruise at sunset is a must.  

Holidays to Guyana start from £2,499pp. Get in touch to find out prices for your perfect trip.

When is the best time to visit Georgetown?

With an equatorial location, you can expect hot temperatures year-round, although Georgetown does have a welcome sea breeze. The rainy seasons (Mid-November – Mid January & May to Mid-July) are best avoided if possible as the humidity levels are high and saturation levels often reach above 90%. 

Best Time to Go

If travelling through Guyana, it is almost a certainty that you will need to pass through Georgetown at some point. Indirect flights from the UK are daily and from here, connections to the main regional hubs of Guyana are (relatively) straightforward. With its location on the northern South America coast, the neighbouring countries and territories of Suriname and French Guiana can be complementary additions to your itinerary.
