TOURISM: A MAGICAL JOURNEY THROUGH GUYANA – Barima-Waini Region #1

Mabaruma Sorjourn – Guyana

Mabaruma Sorjourn – Guyana

NorthwestOrganics1 — August 28, 2009 — Short documentary by Annette Arjoon and Dave Martins about Mabaruma and the wider North West area of Region 1, Guyana, South America.

Mabrauma is a breathtaking location; surrounded by rivers, creeks and rain forest. However, the true beauty of the region is the people. The population is predominately Amerindian, from three tribes Warrau, Carib and Arawak, who’s origins can be traced back over 10,000 years. These are very special people, living an amazing way of life. To experience this is a real privilege.

From Mabaruma, you can take a short boat ride to Shell Beach to see the giant leatherback sea turtles (www.gmtcs.org.gy). This has to be experienced to be believed.

Mabaruma is easy to reach with daily flights from Georgetown, Guyana, by TransGuyana Airways, SkyWest and a 1-day Mabaruma Saturday Special by Air Services (+592-222-4368).
