Demerara Harbour Bridge Reviews
Not sure if it is still The longest Floating Bridge in the world... The most efficient way to get to the western side of the Demerara river and backbone to the regions...
We waited for a long time to cross, then it was way too hot to continue, and I was disappointed. But I assumed the scenery was fantastic.
