Guyana

Getting there & away

Travelers flying to Guyana arrive at Cheddi Jagan International Airport, south of the capital.

From Bonfim (Brazil), you can cross the river to Lethem, in Guyana’s tranquil Rupununi Savanna. Bonfim has a good road connection to the Brazilian city of Boa Vista, but the road from Lethem to Georgetown is rough and may be impassable in wet weather.

In the northeast, a ferry connects Corriverton (Springlands) via Moleson Creek to the Surinamese border town of Nieuw Nickerie via South Drain, from which you can 4WD to Paramaribo and French Guiana.

There are no road connections west to Venezuela and no legal border-crossing points. The only overland route is through Brazil via Boa Vista and Bonfim.
