The Park Hotel
The Park Hotel once ranked among the top seven hotels in Guyana. It was destroyed on May 06, 2000 by fire. Because of the prime location of this site, we are seeking foreign investors to rebuild this hotel which was more than a century old. The Government of Guyana has assured us of many concessions to get this project started. A copy of this letter can be presented on request.

It occupies an area of about fifteen thousand acres, and is engaged in cattle rearing, rice cultivation, and small homestead farming with workers actually living on the Ranch. The herd count at last round-up in February 2001, was in excess of four thousand, thus making it one of the largest cattle ranches on the Coast. The main objective is beef production, even though a small milking herd is maintained. Cattle is shipped to the Georgetown Municipal Abattoir throughout the year. In order to maintain an optimum herd and reduce the incidence of in-breeding, we follow strict breeding practices and record keeping. In addition to this, much emphasis is placed on improved pastures and rotational grazing. Since the ban was removed on foot and mouth disease earlier this year, we are currently improving the present facilities to meet export market standards.
Since eco- tourism is a growing industry in Guyana and the world, capitalizing on the natural beauty of the ranch, has resulted in the birth of Abary Tourist Resort Limited was formed.
Still in the embryonic stages, Abary Tourist Resort Limited plans to offer tourists a series of diverse activities. These include fishing and hunting (seasonal), horse-back riding, canoeing, bird watching, nature walks, swimming, or if you are game for it, a day out with the cowboys. This brainchild will commence operations soon.
