Mainstay, Tapakuma, and Capoey Villages

The three lakes and the namesake Indigenous villages along the Essequibo Coast should be visited by travellers who want to experience the ‘off-the-beaten-path’ Guyana. A combination of water sports like kayaking and boating, along with backcountry trails rife with biodiversity make these three spots popular with travellers. The calming sprawl of the black waters of these lakes make for ideal spots to picnic, swim and unwind after a day of adventure.
