Travel Tips from people who've been to Georgetown & Surrounding Region
The people in Guyana are lovely but stay alert on the local buses for pickpockets. I also got chased by a man with a bat because I'm white and had to run to a local police officer to escort me to a bus. That is not the general atmosphere but it can happen. The clubs were great! A mixture of disco, reggae, calypso and ballroom dancing. Get a bottle of local rum and some coconut water and dance the night away :) There was no running water where I stayed but there is running water in other places. Hang out with locals in the country if you can...I learned how to make tamarind balls while monkeys ran through the house!
We took a queue from the locals and stayed in at night. Our guesthouse advertized a beer garden and that ment they handed you a beer through bars- like not a bar bar but security jail type bars- didn't trust anybody. Oasis Cafe had AMAZING smoothies! And there is a really really nice man at the markets who has a stand that sells bread. The bread is very good. Only pay for a bus to the ferry- pay for the ferry separate and then pay for the bus to Paramaribo separate. Don't let them tell you any different when you buy your ticket. They pick up at your hotel at like 4am. oh and don't get confused- the bus drives onto a ferry on the way to the real ferry.
Dangerous as hell and a dump, unless you have a reason to come here, stay away. If you do come, then you can roam around (in a taxi, not alone) the botanical gardens, a couple of bizarre monuments, and get your taxi driver to come with you to Starbrook market and show you the breweries. there is a long bridge a bit before town as you come from the airport, plus some weird advertisements which make good pics. However, avoid!
