Georgetown Lighthouse, Georgetown

1.7
#5 of 8 in Historic Sites in Guyana
At nearly 200 years old, Georgetown Lighthouse is hard to miss with its iconic red-and-white stripes. While the lighthouse is closed and visitors are no longer able to climb the more than 130 stairs to the balcony for panoramic views, a sign at the entrance details the history of the structure. View it from the street or from one of the upper floors of the nearby Marriott Hotel.
