  • Mashramani. A Native American word meaning “feast after hard work”. This event takes place every year on 23 February, when the country celebrates the anniversary of its republic. It is a carnival-like event with float parades and costumed groups. Colourful float parades and costumed groups march through the city. While you watch, sip a local rum with coconut water or have a Banks beer while swaying and shaking to the rhythm of soca and calypso. It starts around 10pm.
  • Kaieteur Falls. It is 5 times higher than Niagara Falls, about 250 m high. You can reach it by a short flight from the capital, which is offered by various tourist companies as a day trip. Most companies only offer the day trip on Sundays, so it is advisable to book in advance for USD 200-300.
  • Orinduik Falls. A smaller waterfall than Kaieteur, also included when you visit Kaieteur by plane.
  • Iwokrama Rainforest Reserve
