Top Destinations in Guyana

Guyana is truly a hidden gem in South America as you’ll witness nature’s glories and treasures. Situated between Venezuela, Brazil, and Suriname, Guyana is a coastal region that is your gateway to paradise. Explore different cities that will lead you to mountain ranges, rainforests, and savannas.

Start your adventure in the country’s capital, Georgetown, and make your way into other hubs. You will have the first glimpse of Dutch history’s remnants and virgin rainforests in the country’s capital. As long as you have your International Driving Permit in Guyana, you can drive to these places. Driving to Guyana is fully packed with adventure, nature, and culture that will leave a mark on your heart and mind.

Georgetown

The ideal first stop for orientation is the capital city of Guyana, Georgetown. The town offers heritage hotels, museums, moments, and welcoming people. Two of the largest rivers, Essequibo and Demerara, both skirt the city, so you have time for relaxation. Be sure to have your International Driver’s Permit in Guyana to drive your vehicle to the capital city to the rest of the country.

There are also the best places to wind down and grab a drink. You can go to the Vintage Bar & Lounge, 704 Sports bar, and The Strip and Nightcap to get fine wine and live band performances. If you want to go shopping, you can drive to Regent Street, the main shopping avenue where you can find handicrafts and local arts. One of the entertainment venues in the city is the MovieTowne. You can look for a dining and movie experience here.
