Georgetown Tours, Vacations, Travel Packages & Experiences

  • The Capital of Guyana, Georgetown is a great starting point for all Guyana vacations

The vibrant character and graceful beauty of Georgetown reflects much of the city's exceptional cultural history and diversity. Designed by the Dutch (and first known as Stabroek), Guyana's capital has wide, tree-lined avenues, lily-covered canals and many fine examples of 18th and 19th century colonial buildings, all to be enjoyed on a Guyana vacation.

Georgetown's tropical botanical gardens, as one might expect in a country of such incredible natural beauty, are considered to be among the very best in the world. Throughout the city are colourful East Indian markets, indicative of the country's largely East Indian population.

Because Georgetown lies below sea level at high tide, it is protected by an amazing masonry wall, or mole. The city is situated at the mouth of the Demerara River, one of the many rivers that flow down from the Guyana Highlands and across the coastal plain to the Atlantic.

Things to do in Georgetown on Guyana vacations include checking out the markets, taking a walk down Regent Street, or through one of the markets and having a look at the Umana Yama Church (Amerindian cultural center) or some of the older colonial buildings. Georgetown contains many wooden colonial buildings and markets. Most of the main buildings are found around the western region of the town near Independence Square and PromenadeGardens. Interesting buildings include the Walter Roth Museum of Anthropology, the National Library, the Bank of Guyana, and the National Museum of Guyana.
