Since the Essequibo is a braided river, several resorts have taken advantage of the more idyllic locations on the islands and along the banks of neighbouring rivers. Ideal for a weekend getaway from Georgetown, they offer comfort in stunning pristine surroundings. Expect rooms overlooking the river, day hikes and excursions, activities for kids, and hearty meals.
If you plan to stay a couple of days, add an excursion to the Indigenous Village of Falmouth or to Marshall Falls, Trutruba Falls, Kyk-Over-Al Island, Parrot Island and other sights on the Essequibo. The following resorts offer the perfect getaway, whether you’re looking for an active adventure or some down time.
