Baganara Island Resort
Bagarana Island, Essequibo (Kaieteur and the northern forests, Guianas)
Comfortable resort hotel on the edge of the river with a man-made beach. The resort has its own airstrip (the hotel is owned by an airline) so access from the interior is good. They have a boat for excursions on the river and large gardens.
Boat trips on the Essequibo, relax by the river (swimming possible)
17 rooms. 10 superior rooms in the block furthest from the main areas, 2 simple rooms in their own block and 5 rooms in the main house (4 share 2 bathrooms, 1 is a honeymoon suite with ensuite bathroom).
Slightly lacking in character but very comfortable and a good place to relax after a busy trip in the interior.
When to go
All year round. Rainy season May and June.
