The area near the Canje River has some notable monuments to stop by. Guyana’s former President, Cheddi Jagan and his wife, Janet are laid to rest at the Babu Jan(John) cemetery. The Rose Hall Martyrs Memorial and Town Monument are grim reminders of the long decades of slavery in the region. You can also stroll by the 19th century Cumberland Open Air Mosque.
Located 90 kilometers east of New Amsterdam, Moleson Creek is propped at the border of Suriname and Guyana. The Canawaima ferry connects this little village to South Drain in Suriname. Consider adding this to your trip for a slice of off beat Guyana. You will pass through Corriverton, another interesting town to visit in the Berbice region.
