Getting To And Around
Lethem is the main jumping off point to explore the North, Central and South Rupununi. It is connected to Georgetown via different modes of transportation, however air is usually preferred by travellers.
Top Restaurants And Bars
Shopping & Nightlife
Rupununi Weaver Society
Ideal place to pick up craft, including Wapishana hammocks, balata figurines, hand woven baskets, utensils and other artefacts.
Don & Shirley’s Airport Bar
Travel information, transportation bookings, groceries and a small collection of indigenous crafts, especially balata goods from Nappi village.
Hopping over to Brazil
It is not odd to see vehicles cross over to the closest Brazilian town, Bonfim, for a shopping spree or a just a quick glance at the town. The border is managed by immigration and guards on both sides, so do ensure you walk with the necessary documentation if you intend to cross.
The laid-back vibe of the local bars offers unhurried evenings and local snacks coupled with the famous El Dorado Rum or popular Brazilian beer. The best places to grab a drink after a day of sightseeing are Vaquero Bar (which also has karaoke) and Double Wheel, a Lethem institution.
