Guyana: Adel’s Rainforest Resort: Discover a hidden paradise within the Pomeroon

Guyana is a tropical haven, filled with hidden gems in the nooks and crannies of the lush forested land. So when the busy city life gets too much; the noise, the crowds, the same old places, the familiar things, I would advise you to take a trip.

Head to the Charity wharf and board the speedboat. Sit and let the warm rays of the sun envelope you while splashes of the cool Pomeroon River hit your face.
