Where to go when - our guide to Guyana

Kaieteur Falls, Guyana

The weather in Guyana is wide and varied

This ex-British colony is a remarkable and unique melting pot of Afro-Caribbean, Amerindian, European, Brazilian and Asian influences. Covered in vast areas of virgin rainforest, savannah and ancient tablelands it is a true wilderness; the highlight being Kaieteur Falls. With a tropical climate it is hot and humid year round. The north of the country experiences two wet seasons – May-June and December-February. The south and the Rupununi has only one wet season, May-August. Travel in the interior is easier in the dry season as roads can get very muddy when it rains and attractions are more easily accessible. However travelling by boat in the wetter months can be a peaceful and magical option and you can see much wildlife in the treetops.
The best months to visit for wildlife viewing and exploring the interior are February-April and September-November. This is when there are most visitors, though lodges are rarely full.
