Lake Capoey - Guyana

Lake Capoey – Guyana

About five miles inland from the Atlantic, along the Essequibo Coast, stretches a cordon of fresh water lakes formed by creeks which spreads over the coastal savannahs. The quiet and scenic Lake Capoey is one of several lakes including Mainstay and Hot and Cold that captures some the splendor of Guyana’s lush tropical greenery.

Lake Capoey is located near the villages of Affiance and Taymouth Manor, in Region Two {Pomeroon-Supenaam} and can be access from Anna Regina or Suddie. The tranquil Lake is believed to have been found centuries ago and settled by Arawaks who still maintain a small presence in the nearby communities. There are more than 380 residents who are in involved in farming and the timber industry.    [Read more – The Scenic Lake Capoey of Guyana]

    Yet another example of the sleeping beauty that is Guyana, patiently waiting to be awakened by the soft kiss of the right prince(s).
    We must. however, be careful to have the correct approach to opening our beautiful country to eco-tourism. There will be many downfalls if this is not handled correctly.

    Keep developers away from this pristine lake!

    Dmitri, my friend, you make us increasingly aware of the Edenic beauty and rich history of Guyana with your pictures and informative articles.
    As always, thanks for educating us and sharing your knowledge.

      I second Deen on that, Dmitri.

      Beautiful pictures by photographer, Marco Basir. How can I obtain his permission to use his photo of the ocean and broken canoe as the cover picture for my blog?

    What a lovely serene place, wish I could visit for a vacation away from the hustle and pollution of the city, I know we have to be careful of developers, but it would be selfish not to share this beautiful lake with others. With careful planning and development ,some of its natural state can be maintained. remember nothing remains the same forever only GOD,
