Eugene F. Correia International Airport services the country for domestic flights connecting even the remotest areas by a network of more than 126 airports and airstrips. You can get flights to Lethem (for Rupununi), Kaieteur, Fairview (for Iwokrama) and other destinations from here. Unless you are chartering a flight, expect to fly in small Cessna Caravans and Beechcraft planes (14-20 seaters) for a thrilling and scenic flight.
The safest way to get around Georgetown is via a taxi referral from your accommodation. Taxis are both plentiful and inexpensive at an average cost of US$2 per stop or US$10 per hour. A ride to CJIA costs around US$25-30 one-way. First row seats of the countryside are guaranteed when you use in-city cab services or private minibuses for either day trips or longer distances. Road journeys can be long and rough, so plan as per distance and time.
Iwokrama Reserve is connected by air and road and can be accessed from many of the major towns in Guyana.
The closest airstrip to Iwokrama lies in Fairview Village, which falls in the middle of the Georgetown-Lethem route. Multiple domestic airlines offer charter flights, which allows for quick 45-minute transfers and day trips as well.
Regional buses, private mini buses and 4x4 vehicles are the best way to travel the 6-8 hour journey from the capital city of the country, Georgetown. This journey is quite a bit longer than a quick flight, but is the best way to see the rainforest up close and personal.
