Planning a trip to the Three Guyanas is very challenging. One will quickly learn that convenient flights between these nations is not easy and overland travel is not recommended and time consuming. We only had a week to complete the trip and after much planning, we were able to put together the following itinerary:
We booked our tickets on May 3, 2015; just over seven months in advance. There is not a lot of flight availability in this region and when we saw that hotels were filling up for the time period we were planning to be there, we thought it was time to book the flights to ensure we would be able to do the trip. I’m not going to lie on this one-airfare to Georgetown, Guiana is NOT cheap. From Toronto, we each paid $870 round trip. The flight on Suriname airways from Georgetown to Suriname was more affordable; $110.
One thing we noticed in Georgetown and Suriname is that the airports are a long drive from the cities. Be sure to negotiate a good taxi fare. These airports are converted military airbases thus the distances from town.
