Tip on : Georgetown - 5 years ago
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!
