Best Time to Fly to Georgetown

For many visitors to Guyana, the weather is a deciding factor regarding what time of year is best to travel. Many people find it best to avoid the rainy seasons in May-June and December-January, however flights can be a little cheaper during off-peak months like May. The climate in this country is hot all year round, which gives you plenty of leeway when booking your flights. July and August can be especially hot, though, so you might want to avoid those months if high temperatures are not your thing. To experience Georgetown in full festival mode, why not visit during Christmas or Easter, which are the main festivities celebrated in the city?

Getting around Georgetown

When it comes to transport in Guyana, taxis or rental cars (there are kiosks in town and at the airport) are generally your best bet, as railways and buses are somewhat limited. It is the law in Georgetown that all taxi cabs must be painted yellow, so it will be easy for you to recognise them on the city streets. Taxis in Georgetown all operate according to a standard fare which is generally quite well regulated. If in doubt, though, just agree the fee with your driver before you embark on your journey.
