Day 1 Georgetown

Travel to Guyana and head to the country’s capital Georgetown, where the Caribbean influences are evident on the corner of every street. Delve into the throng of the marketplace, indulge in some Guyanese cuisine at one of the local eateries, or hit up some of the rollicking bars that make this town famous for its nightlife.

Day 2 Kaieteur Falls

Visit Guyana’s astonishing Kaieteur Falls where the Potaro River drops drastically into the depths of a gorge 800 m below. The concentrated torrent that plunges over the edge is like no other waterfall on earth, and the sheer magnitude is a sight to behold. A little more understated, but no less beautiful, Orinduik Falls sits in front of the backdrop of the Pakaraima Mountains. Sit back and enjoy one of the most beautiful locations in Guyana.
