Arrowpoint Nature Resort
An early morning transfer by road along the East Bank of the Demerara River will take you to the Arrowpoint Marina. From the Marina, it’s a short boat ride across the Demerara River to the mouth of the Kamuni River and onwards towards Pokero Creek, a smaller “black water” tributary which is quite a contrast after the muddy brown waters of the Demerara. The dark shimmering water leads you through a corridor of overhanging vegetation and as we enter the Santa Mission Amerindian Reserve, the habitat changes from forest to more open savannah and seasonally flooded swamp. Ringed Kingfishers and Greater Anis, together with other riverside birds, are common here.
You will stop at the village of Santa Mission, a community of Arawak and Carib Amerindians, where you will be able to experience village life and see and purchase local handicraft made from materials of the rainforest before continuing on your journey.
Within the heart of the Santa Mission Amerindian Reserve lies “Arrowpoint”, named after the numerous Arrow Trees found in the area traditionally used to make arrows for hunting. The Resort itself is set against the backdrop of the Rainforest which is a haven for birdwatchers and nature lovers with an abundance of wildlife including 350 species of birds. A stretch of white sandy beach and a cluster of comfortable, inviting thatched roof lodges are the forecourt to the tropical jungle ambiance behind.
Spend the day enjoying a variety of physically challenging outdoor activities including walking or mountain biking along well marked jungle trails, beach volleyball, swimming, canoeing, riding the surf bikes or simply relaxing in a gently swaying hammock.
