Guyana’s tropical climate is hot and humid (70 percent), moderated by northeast trade winds. There are two rainy seasons—May to mid-August and mid-November to mid-January. Flash floods are common during these times. The weather remains pleasant most months, especially in the coastal areas. In Georgetown, you can expect temperatures to hover between 75°F and 90°F year round, with July the warmest and February the coolest.

Best Time to Visit Guyana

You can visit Guyana any time of the year, but if you want to explore the jungles and rainforests without interruption, the best time to come is during the dry season, from the end of January until April, or from mid-August to mid-November. However, hotel rates and airfare tend to be higher at these times so you may want to consider a trade-off of perfect weather for budget.
