Wander down the graceful tree-lined streets of Georgetown, gaze at the colonial buildings, marvel at the wooden cathedral reputed to be the tallest wooden building in the world, and for a moment you might think you have left our time and wandered back to Dutch and English colonial times.
Guyana means "Land of many waters" this is an Amerindian word. The country can be characterized by its vast rain forests dissected by numerous rivers, creeks and waterfalls, notably Kaieteur Falls on the Potaro River. Guyana's tepuis are famous for being the inspiration for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 1912 novel The Lost World. The country enjoys a friendly, multicultural society, high floral and faunal biodiversity, prize-winning rum, British Colonial architecture and Demerara sugar.
WEATHER AND CLIMATE IN GUYANA
July-November is the best time to visit, although the rest of the year isn't too bad. The two rainy seasons are mid November through January and May-August. Even then, it generally doesn't rain enough to ruin a trip if you stick to the coast (most rainfall occurs inland). Guyana's high temperatures (about 85-90 F/30-32 during the day and 68-72 F/20-22 at night) are somewhat tempered by the trade winds. Take a folding umbrella no matter when you visit (not just for unpredictable downpours, but also for protection from the sun).
