In 1989, the Correia family acquired Baganara Island. This island is located in the Essequibo River, five miles south of the traditional gateway to the interior, Bartica.
By 1994, the famous Baganara façade was taking shape. Residents of Bartica and other curious persons would travel just to take pictures and marvel at the transformation of a wild jungle to a serene paradise right before their eyes.
In 1995, construction of an airstrip and a manager’s facility was underway. The facility and the island were used as the venue for numerous training seminars and management retreats. Unknowingly, seeds were being planted for the future of Baganara Island as a resort par excellence, where private and corporate clientele could escape for physical and mental rejuvenation.
In 1996, the timing was right to transform the island to a resort facility and hence, Evergreen Adventures evolved. Evergreen Adventures was launched to showcase Guyana’s natural beauty, it offers numerous opportunities for visitors to our country to experience our rich multicultural society and diverse landscapes. The idea was to pay homage to our beloved country by advertising all the exotic qualities of Guyana.
