Welcome to
North-western Villages & Other Towns

Only 10 miles from the Venezuelan border, the villages of Hosororo, Mabaruma, Kumaka and Warapoka are the gateway to the hilly regions of northwest Guyana. Overland journeys reward hardy travellers with pristine rainforests and savannah. Take a couple days to explore the region’s cocoa plantations, Wauma Palm Oil Estate, Hosororo Falls, Kissing Rocks and Tiger Caves. This insider’s view makes you feel as if you have been let in on a secret. Some of the other towns to explore are:

  • Santa Rosa
    As one of the gateways to Shell Beach Protected Area, Santa Rosa welcomes you with its natural beauty and the easygoing vibe of the village. Stroll about to see the many shrines of Mary and visit the Mariaba Craft Shop. Here, souvenirs in the form of baskets, hammocks, jewelry, toys and plates are made from the local tibisiri straw. Enjoy the view of the Moruka river and golden savannah from the hilltop church.
  • Anna Regina
    The town has the best of both waterfronts – the Atlantic along its northern edge and the Tri-Lakes to the south. The breezy town makes wandering an easy affair. Step out to explore the Anna Regina High Bridge built by the Dutch, the 19th century St. Bartholomew Anglican Church, and the Damon’s Cross and Damon Monument memorial, which pay homage to a hero of the slaves’ uprising in 1834.
