When travelling to multiple countries and bringing more than just your iPhone 5 then the best international travel adapter for Guyana to buy is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. Guyanese use four different standards of wall outlets (types G, A, B and D) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for both types A and G. As these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries around the world just by switching the heads over. If your type of iPhone 5 supports Fast Charge (note that not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times by using one of these travel chargers along with support for more power hungry devices.

Having a four port adapter means you can power more than one device simultaneously without needing to pack multiple travel chargers on your Guyanese trip or occupying additional wall outlets. Because you are only bringing a single USB travel charger will keep the size and weight down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand luggage while travelling.
