Getting Around in Guyana

Visitors have a choice of speedboat or ferry service to get to their destination.  Visitors intending to visit tourist sites and resorts on the Essequibo river would most likely be boarding one of the "river taxis" that ply the Essequibo river, or even a jet boat that may be part of the fleet or privately owned or contracted by one of the resorts.

Transportation

By Land
Georgetown is well served with taxis, which operate throughout the city and to other urban centers.  Taxis are easy to find outside most hotels and throughout Georgetown (e.g. Stabroek Market and Avenue of Republic).  There are fixed fares for most distances; check in advance.  Most trips within Georgetown are G$3,000 sounds high.  Private taxis are easily arranged through your hotel or by calling one of the numerous taxis services.

There are also ultra-cheap minibuses running around town and along the coast, or to Cheddi Jagan International Airport and Linden.  Check the fare in advance and prepare to be jostled.

Car rental is an alternative, at US $30-50 per day with a security deposit of US $200-250, depending on the type of vehicle.  There are good roads from Georgetown to Timehri and Linden, and for 185 miles along the coast from Springlands to Charity.  INTRASERV Bus alternative to Lethem, everyday except Wednesday and Saturdays.  Cost G$8,000 one way. 10% discount is available on return tickets.

By River
Guyana has over 600 miles navigable river, which provide an important means of communication.  The Berbice, the Essequibo and the Demerara are crossed by ferries and also by 4 and 6 seater privately run river taxis, which can be chartered.  For details on ferry schedule, contact the Transport and Harbour Department, Walter Street.

By Plane
Private charter companies operate flights into the interior from Ogle airport.  Minibuses serve the airport from Stabroek Market in Georgetown and Surrounding areas.
