Georgetown is the capital of Guyana, built by the Dutch and English in the 18th century. The architecture of that time is still seen throughout this hidden little vacation spot in the Caribbean. The city, just a few feet below sea level at high tide, holds some of the most interesting cuisine and culture in South America.

Captured by the British in 1781 and the French in 1782, then restored to the Dutch in 1784, Georgetown has survived more than two centuries by being adaptable. The Great Fire of 1945 destroyed much of the town, but once again the inhabitants adapted and survived. Guyana finally gained independence on May 26, 1966, and has steadily improved in capital city, and only city, Georgetown. Laid out in a grid of intersecting streets and canals originally built by the Dutch, the city is protected by a huge sea wall. The two principal streets to remember are Regents Street for the shopping and Sherriffs Street for the nightlife.
