Guyana climate: when to go to Guyana

Guyana has a warm and humid equatorial climate with intense rainfall and scarce seasonal differences in temperature, which in fact are maintained throughout the year between 23°C and 30°C, the heat and humidity are constantly mitigated along the coast from the trade winds. The warmer months are those between August and October.

The winds from the north-east and south-east together with the warm current that flows around the coasts of the country are the two factors that affect the equatorial climate of Guyana. The country is caracterise by a weak thermal excursion and seasonal heavy rains.

In the state of Guyana rains are more intense on the plateau and along the coast, for example the capital Georgetown has an average of 2,290 mm ​​of rain annually. Guyana has two distinct rainy seasons, the first from May to mid-August, the second between mid-November and mid-January.
