What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

Air quality is perfect outside of Georgetown. Within the city itself, air quality is usually excellent too, aside from the occasional brush/garbage fire. There just aren’t enough people/cars/factories to generate air pollution. - Aug 2019


The air quality is good. - Sep 2016


The air quality can be good but the locals burn everything from garbage to dead animals so if you are downwind, beware. In the interior, the air can be very good but also very hot and humid in some places. - Apr 2014


The air quality is usually very good. The only bad times are when a neighbor or nearby business decides to burn trash. The fumes of plastic and other trash items can be overwhelming. - Nov 2013


Moderate. Many burn trash. - May 2012


Good. Sea breezes all the time. Some trash burning, but normally blown away quickly. - Mar 2012


Air quality is excellent. Flat city with Atlantic breeze ensures fresh air. Not a large population, so not a lot of emissions. The locals do burn trash and as part of the sugar cane industry, they burn the crops prior to harvest. - Feb 2012


Good! Yes, this is a poor country, but it has none of the air pollution or traffic of large poor countries. Garbage is a problem, though. - Feb 2010
