Take a relaxing boat ride down Essequibo River to see an abundance of local wildlife, which includes fish and crocodiles in the water, and monkeys and birds in the jungle along the riverbanks. Guyana's longest river, this waterway pours out into the Atlantic Ocean. Take the ferry to Michelle's Island, where you can unwind and take advantage of a pristine beach.
