Established in 1781 on the country's Atlantic shoreline, Georgetown features cultural attractions relating primarily to its complex history, with museums detailing the city's passing between the rules of different colonial powers. British, French, and Dutch influences make for a stylistically diverse town center, while a number of green areas and canals help create a laidback atmosphere ideal for a relaxing Georgetown vacation.

Where to stay in Georgetown

Georgetown boasts by far the most eclectic choice of accommodations in the country. The eastern bank of the Demerara River offers many of the most exclusive options, with long-established resort-style hotels ensuring a range of upscale facilities and services. Less-expensive hotels can be found on the city's side streets, along with family-run guesthouses and the odd hostel. Consider staying away from the water to keep costs down, or look for a rental property if you plan a longer stay.
