Welcome to Suriname

Suriname, set in a natural tropical wilderness, is a splendid combination of the Caribbean and South America, with fascinating reminders of a sometimes turbulent past.

Suriname RiverIn the northeast of the South American continent, bounded by Guyana on the west and French Guyane on the east and Brazil to the south.

Influenced by numerous cultures - African, Amerindian, Asian, Jewish and Dutch - the country reflects this diversity harmoniously in its day to day life.

Dominated by mighty rivers which provide essential highways into the rainforest and jungles of the interior, which remain virtually untouched by man, Suriname is waiting to be explored. There is little tourism infrastructure in Suriname except for a few well organized tour operators.

The bustling capital and port of Paramaribo, stands guard over the Suriname River. The striking architecture reminds us of its Dutch colonial past.

Amerindian Village Town HallSetting out to explore the natural beauty of the interior by boat or light aircraft, you encounter the extraordinary natural heritage of Suriname spreading out like a tropical carpet.

Spot the occasional wild cat roaming in the rainforest and hear the unearthly cry of howler monkeys echoing through the trees, see giant tarantula spider webs and huge termite nests. For the more adventurous head to the swamps where crocodiles, piranhas, anacondas and boa constrictors go about their business.

Another don't miss for nature lovers is the Galibi Nature Reserve where you can experience four sea turtle species nesting on its beaches between February and July.
