Welcome to

Historically a bauxite-mining town, Linden’s appeal to travellers lies in its vantage location. The town is split by the Demerara River, and is the gateway to the central rainforest region of the country. As the second largest town of Guyana, it houses several interesting museums and spots of heritage value. They throw the spotlight on the indigenous lifestyle and the bauxite history of the region. The traveller can also stroll through the town to gaze at the remnants of the colonial architecture. Usually off the well-worn tourist track, Linden is one of the best offbeat destinations of Guyana.

Things to Do & See

Located 102 kilometres south of Georgetown, Linden is best accessed by road.


Like many towns in the hinterland of the country, Linden has an airport that is not regularly serviced but is only available via a chartered flight. The closest airports to Linden with regularly scheduled flights are Cheddi Jagan International Airport located in Timehri which serves most of the international flights coming in to Guyana and Eugene F. Correia International Airport (Ogle), which services international flights from Barbados and Suriname and all domestic flights within Guyana.


Both north and south Linden can be accessed by the Soesdyke-Linden Highway and Linden-Lethem road, respectively. Use a 4X4 vehicle or mini buses or Amatur buses to get here. Many locals also hop into their family vehicle for quick weekend trips to enjoy the calm outside of the bustling city.


The Demerara River works as a great water highway for boats and offers a picturesque view throughout your journey.

Shopping and Nightlife

Mackenzie & Wismar Markets

Local and imported home goods and local Guyanese jewellery is the biggest reason for bustling in  this market. Do not be intimidated by the crowds. The friendly and busy atmosphere is the reason many visit. For more local flavour, visit the Wismar Market where the regular daily interactions of vendor and shopper are fun to take in. Apart from these markets, you can also visit Irene’s Creative Handicraft Workshop. This is the ideal spot to pick local souvenirs to take back home and remember your travels. Irene’s workshop is the go-to location for exquisite wooden bowls, vases and other rare and unique objects.
