Anna Regina

The charming city of Anna Regina, as the center of the Essequibo coast, is the starting point for a variety of activities within the laid-back region.

This city is also considered in popular cities in Guyana. Capote Lake on the Capoey Amerindian Mission is also ideal for slinging a hammock. You can also catch a stunning view of the rice fields on the ride to Feather Beach, a favorite local swimming hole. In August, Lake Mainstay Resort hosts a regatta on its black-water lake and a party on its white sand. All of these destinations are easily accessible by bus or car from Anna Regina, but keep in mind that traveling to the coast and along the coast is difficult after sunset. 135 mi/217 km southwest of Georgetown.

Port Mourant

Port Mourant is a small and welcoming little town on Guyana’s Atlantic coastal stretches, famed for its prolific output of cricketers (the sound of cork on willow is the usual backing track to daily life here!) and as the birthplace of the county’s revered ‘Father of the Nation’: Dr Cheddi Jagan. The down-to-earth spot is also a great place to glimpse Guyana’s agricultural heartland, with famer’s markets touting fresh fruits straight from the fields. A resident population of students add a youthful edge to the place, while the nearby urban center of Rose Hall is interesting in that it’s Guyana’s smallest town.
