Internet & Calling in Guyana
Telephones, Internet and Electricity
Internet and phones
Much of Guyana is remote and that is a big part of its appeal! A tour of Guyana is probably not for people who want to stay permanently connected to the internet.
In Georgetown there is no problem making international calls and using the internet. Elsewhere it is best to assume you won’t have internet or phone access. Many lodges use radios for communication which isn’t available to guests. Internet might be available via a shared computer and a very slow connection.
Voltage and socket type varies in Guyana. In Georgetown, the most common socket type is the US/Canadian type A socket with 110 V. Outside of Georgetown, British type G sockets are more common with 220 V. It is a good idea to take adapters and voltage convertors that will work with both US and British style sockets and voltages.
Electricity is often not available 24 hours a day in lodges in the interior of Guyana. A portable charger or extra batteries for cameras could be a good idea.
