In Guyana there are two rainy seasons (from December to January and from May to June) and two relatively dry seasons (February to March and September to October). The duration and intensity of rainfall vary depending on the area, but May to August tends to be worst, with rain affecting most of the country. If you want to choose a time that’s best for the whole country, then between February and March is best.
As Amerindians, Africans, Christians, Hindus and Muslims are all part of the community in Guyana there are various religious festivals. Mashramani, sometimes referred to as “Mash”, is usually observed on the 23 February – Guyana’s Republic Day – to commemorate the “Birth of the Republic”. It is probably the most colourful of all the festivals. Phagwah is a Hindu religious holiday observed in March to celebrate the triumph of good over evil. Ramadan is the most important time of the year for Muslims but it is not held at the same time every year. Not forgetting Christmas & Easter for the Christians.
