Book flights to Guyana

Guyana, with its rainforest-covered interior and north-Atlantic coastline, is often dwarfed by the reputation of its big-name neighbours, Brazil, Venezuela and Barbados. But this compact nation – which is slightly smaller in square kilometres than the UK – shouldn’t be overlooked. As South America’s only English-speaking country, you’ll feel right at home exploring its capital, Georgetown, and beyond.

Fly to Guyana with British Airways and you’ll discover a destination that’s remained largely untouched by tourism. Call in at St. George’s Cathedral in Georgetown to see one of the tallest wooden churches in the world, and pick up jewellery, books and food at Stabroek Market. If you want to feel a million miles away from it all, book a trip into the wilderness. You can stay at a rainforest lodge and visit Kaieteur Falls, spot jaguars and pumas winding between the trees, and hike up mountains that reward you with pictures destined for a photo frame.

Guyana flight FAQs

How long is a flight to Guyana?

A flight from London Gatwick to Guyana takes around 11 hours and 30 mins with a short stop on the way in St Lucia.

The cheapest month of the year to fly to Guyana will change based on when you book your trip and when you want to travel. You can use our handy low fare finder to find the cheapest flight options for every month of the year. 

Is Guyana cheap to visit?

The best way to make your trip to Guyana affordable is to plan ahead. Food and local travel around Georgetown can be quite cheap, while trips into the rainforest can cost a little more.

Is it easy to get around Guyana?

It takes just over an hour by taxi to get to Georgetown from Cheddi Jagan International Airport. The airport’s official taxi service is the safest and most affordable way to travel. Once you reach the capital, there are lots of taxis to get you around, plus mini buses.

Guyana’s rainforests, mountains and rivers are made for postcards. The best way to see more of the country is to add a stay outside of the city to your trip. Make sure to book with a reputable tour company.

Why visit Guyana?

Untouched natural beauty and a laid-back Caribbean vibe make Guyana the perfect off-the-beaten-track destination. Miles of coastline are lined with pristine beaches offering turtle watching, parties and sports. Head into the jungle to see a line-up of wild animals in their natural

habitat. In the city you can learn about the country’s history and watch a local cricket match – it’s Guyana’s favourite sport.
