On certain occasions, I use the space in this column to deal with a pressing subject using the expertise of someone proficient in that field.  Today, as we contemplate what Guyana will be like after COVID-19, the column presents the viewpoint of my wife, Annette Arjoon-Martins, knowledgeable in matters of travel and the environment in Guyana.

By Annette Arjoon-Martins

Guyana’s tourism product is largely dependent on international visitations so the international travel ban for COVID-19 has hit the industry really hard, virtually bringing that sector to a halt.

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.
