Guyana Currency


The Guyanese dollar (GYD) is the currency used in Guyana. Cash can be exchanged in hotels, banks and cambios (businesses that specialise in exchanging). Cambios normally offer the best exchange rate. Ask your tour leader for help in finding the best cambios to use. Credit cards are not widely accepted. Most major hotels and some restaurants will accept credit cards. US Dollars are best to bring for exchange. ATMs are not easily found in Guyana.
