Escape to this exotic island paradise and experience one of Guyana’s true gems. Peaceful, exotic, & spectacular are just some of the words used to describe Baganara, a rainforest resort located five miles from Bartica in the Essequibo River. This 187 acre private island effortlessly blends the comforts of a scenic retreat with all the fun of an elegant, full-service resort where you can explore the wonders on our nature walk or on a kayak meandering silently through the creeks under the majestic canopy of the forest.
