    A historic lighthouse, just when it was built, I cannot tell you. It is difficult to take a picture of this kind of structure as there are no good vantage points. Suppose we could have gotten one off the ship but simply did not remember.

    We were also on early dinner seating. Rush, rush.

    City Hall

    by jorgejuansanchez Written Aug 22, 2014

    One of the building that impressed me more while in Georgetown was the City Hall.
    According to what I leant there, the builcing was erected at the end of the XIX century in Gothic style.
    It was unexpected to me to find that building in Southamerica. It was about 30 meters high.

    Visit Shell Beach

    by sazzaguyana Written Jul 10, 2007

    A remote beach on the north coast, accessed by speed boat. I visited this beach with a group of friends, the trip there wasn't easy to say the least and we ended up having to walk miles to get to where we were staying but it was worth it in the end.
    Watching the sunset whist drinking from coconuts around a camp fire with no one around for miles.
    Also the chance to catch a glimse of some of the most rare sea turtles.

    The only place in guyana where you can swim in a relitivly un muddy bit of sea.

    Birding one of the best destinations of the world

    by bianchis Updated Jul 13, 2007

    Birding in the rainforest
    Guyana has been featured in Birdwatch, Waterlife, Condé Nast Traveller, Guardian Unlimited, and the Sundowner. Guyana has also been ranked alongside Peru, also on the South American continent, which is considered the best destination in the world for birding.

    Divided into three distinct areas: the Coastlands, the Rainforest and the Savannahs. Each of the three natural regions offers its own diverse array of species. Several species can be seen in the capital city, Georgetown. Guyana’s Coastal Plain.

    Eighty percent of Guyana's 83,000 sq miles is covered with tropical rainforest. It is geographically linked to the great Amazon River basin and therefore shares the spectacular avifauna of this region.

    The Scarlet Ibis, Egrets, Herons, Gulls can be seen on the seashore.
    Hawks, Tanagers, Flycatchers, Finches, Blackbirds and Orioles can be seen in the cultivated area.
    Georgetown has almost two hundred species such as the Snail and Kite, as well as several species of Tanagers, Parrots and Hummingbirds.

    Two distinct areas of savannah include;: the intermediate and Rupununi Savannahs.
    This ecosystem accommodates a wide variety of waders which include Storks, Ibises, Ducks and smaller species of waterfowl, in addition to grassland species. The savannahs bordering the Kanuku Mountains are particularly rich in birdlife as there is an overlapping of species, such as the magnificent Harpy Eagle. Spectacular Rainforest Species

    The canopy supports many species such as the elusive Harpy Eagle, Toucans, Macaws and Parrots, including the endangered Scarlet Macaw.

    In the middle section of the forest, Hummingbirds, Trogans, Jacamars, Tanagers, Woodpeckers and Antbirds are other species are found. This section is also home to the distinguished Cock of the Rock and the ever present Screaming Phea which provides the familiar voice of the rainforest. The fallen fruits found on the forest floor provide food for many species such as Tinamous, Curassows, Guans, Chacalacas and Trumpeters

    Look Around

    by Violapreacher Written Sep 15, 2006

    get out of town as soon as possible. The jungle has many offerings.

    Take a day trip to Kaeteur Falls. $100.00 round trip on a little plane.

    Visit the shops. Even if you don't see them...ask. Seems everyone does some craft.

    Go uptown to the shops and museum. Take in the local flavor

    Kevin and I enjoyed the zoo, lots of animals to check out. Just be careful on the monkeys and use your common sense as it's possible to be too close to some of the cages.

    The organ pipes are, as you can see, very unusually crafted and quite beautiful. We did not get a chance to hear what they sound like but they are reputed to be very rich in tone.

    On a lighter note, here's the real deal, a cart drawn by donkeys or mules. Not uncommon in these parts. Though not effected by increased fuel costs, they sure do leave a lot behind...........
