Georgetown - Post Report Question and Answers

What is your home city/country? How long is the trip to post from there, with what connections? How easy/difficult is it to travel to this city/country?

U.S.A. It's a 4.5 hour flight to Miami and it's more difficult than one would think. At the time of writing this, daily flights leave and arrive in the middle of the night and the drive to and from the airport is dangerous from a common sense perspective. It can take anywhere from 45 min to 2 hours depending on traffic. Poor roads with random sand piles, pot holes and speeding/passing industrial vehicles with careless drivers make it a gripping experience just to get to and from the airport. There is a new flight that connects through Houston so options are opening up for flights to the U.S. but basically, everyone going to the U.S. goes through Miami, Houston or JFK. To get anywhere in South America, you have to transfer through Panama and there are only 2 or 3 flights there per week. - Apr 2024

Northeastern United States. It’s surprisingly difficult to get to most of the United States from here. You can only fly direct from Georgetown to Miami or New York (JFK), and flights generally leave very early in the morning or arrive in the U.S. very late at night, making connections a challenge. Unless you’re going to south Florida or the NYC metro area, expect a minimum 12-hour trip to get anywhere in the United States. Aside from the U.S., the only daily major international flights are to Panama City (Copa), Trinidad (Caribbean Airlines), and Barbados (LIAT). - Aug 2019
