Useful Information on Guyana
General: Guyana, officially the Co-operative Republic of Guyana and previously known as British Guiana, is a sovereign state on the northern coast of South America. Guyana has been a former colony of the British, Dutch, French and the Spanish. Guyana achieved independence from the United Kingdom on 26 May 1966 and became a Republic on 23 February 1970. It is a member of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), which has its secretariat headquarters in Guyana's capital, Georgetown. Guyana is also one of the few Caribbean countries that are not islands. Guyana is a blend of the Caribbean and South America. The name Guyana is an Amerindian word meaning "Land of Many Waters". International telephone country code: +592, Internet country code: .gy, Electricity voltage: 240V frequency 60 Hz (in Georgetown, both 120 V and 240 V at either 50 or 60 Hz are found), Electrical outlet: Type A North American/Japanese 2-blade, Type D & G old and new British 3-pin, Time zone: GMT - 4
Climate: Guyana has a tropical climate with almost uniformly high temperatures and humidity, and much rainfall. The rainfall is generally high for most of the year, as is the humidity. The two rainy seasons are mid November through January and May to August. July to November is the best time to visit, although the rest of the year is not too bad. Guyana's high temperatures (about 30-32 Celsius day time and 20-22 at night) are somewhat tempered by the trade winds.
Languages: English is the official language of Guyana. In addition, Caribbean languages (Akawaio, Wai-Wai, Arawak and Macushi) are spoken by a small minority, while Guyanese Creole (an English-based creole) is widely spoken.

Taxis: Use hotel or airport-approved taxis, which are inexpensive and reliable, rather than hail a taxi from the roadside. You should avoid walking around Georgetown alone, even in the main areas and especially after dark. Taxis are generally safe and remain the safest means of getting around town and to and from the airport. Use taxis that are connected to major hotels or that are painted yellow. All yellow taxis are registered with the Government of Guyana’s licensing office. It is advisable prior to entering a taxi to make note of the vehicle’s licence plate number.
Currency: The currency of Guyana is Guyanese Dollar which constitutes 100 cents. The international code is GYD and can be written G$. Guyanese dollar notes are available in denominations of G$1000, 500, 100 and 20 and coins are available in denominations of G$10, 5 and 1. The US Dollar is accepted everywhere in Guyana. The approximate exchange rate on 26 January 2011 was: 1 Euro = 283 G$, 1 US$ = 206 G$, 1 GB£ = 329 G$.
Money: Guyana is a largely cash-based economy. American Dollars are more widely accepted than other foreign currencies. The Bank of Nova Scotia’s ATMs machines accept international bank cards (Visa/MasterCard). Some credit card companies have been known to block credit cards once they are used in Guyana. You could avoid this by informing your credit card company before departure of your intention to travel to Guyana. Currencies can be exchanged at banks and at Bureaux de change. Currency restrictions: The export and import of local currency is restricted to G$200. The export of foreign currency is limited but import of foreign currency is unlimited. The currency of Guyana is not negotiable in foreign countries.
Casinos: Guyana's first in-house casino, Princess Casino Guyana, opened in February 2010 at The Guyana Princess Hotel. Only registered guests of the hotel and overseas nationals could use the casino. By law, Guyanese are not be permitted to gamble at a casino. However, Guyana's President has hinted that the government may amend the Gambling Prevention law to allow Guyanese the opportunity to gamble in local casinos. The Las Vegas-style Princess Casino is the only casino in Guyana and employs 140 Guyanese.
