Attention: All our trips in Suriname are covered by the guarantee of insurance for the Tourism Sector Suriname.

Suriname is enchantingly beautiful and is characterised by its virgin rainforests, wildly churning rivers, magnificent falls and an unparalleled wealth of animal and plant life, as well as gorgeous mangrove forests, expansive savannahs and picturesque river beaches. All this – and more – is Suriname: for Suriname is not just a unique destination because of its natural beauty, but its harmonious mix of many different cultures, the unique city of Paramaribo, its wealth of treasures from its colonial past and the possibility of meeting the native population, which still lives its life in accordance with centuries-old customs and traditions, all make a tour to Suriname an unforgettable experience.

The country is divided into ten districts: Paramaribo, Nickerie, Coronie, Saramacca, Wanica, Coronie, Saramacca, Wanica, Commewijne, Marowijne, Brokopondo, Para and Sipaliwini.

PARAMARIBO
When visiting Suriname, there is no avoiding Paramaribo. Over half the country’s population lives in its excellently preserved historical capital, with its wealth of buildings constructed in typically Surinamese style and traditional wooden houses for you to take in. The city, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to many museums and sights, lively shopping streets and a bustling night life. It’s impossible to get bored in the “wooden city of the Caribbean”! Go shopping in Paramaribo’s heart, in the square formed by Domineestraat, Jodenbreestraat, Maagdenstraat and Steenbakkerijstraat streets, or in one of the many malls, the most famous of which is Hermitage Mall. Or visit the Central Market or go for a leisurely stroll through the Garden of Palms.

BACK TO YOUR ROOTS (Diaspora package)

Before Surinam’s independence on 25 November 1975, and afterwards as well, hundreds of thousands of Surinamese moved to the Netherlands. Over 75% of the trips to the Netherlands before November 25, 1975 were provided by Does Travel & Cadushi Tours (then Does Travel Service). Everyone had his or her own reasons for leaving Suriname at that time. Nearly 400,000 countrymen now live in the Netherlands, many of whom were also born in the Netherlands. The Surinamese in the Netherlands and those in Suriname are inextricably linked. This is reflected in the many daily money transfers from the Netherlands to Suriname, usually through Western Union or MoneyGram. In addition, every week thousands of boxes / packages are sent to Suriname, mostly with food and household items. But also trade goods, medical equipment and so on.

The strong ties with the Netherlands are also expressed in the almost daily flights between the Netherlands and Suriname. Whether it’s for a birthday, a birth, a funeral, another important event or just to enjoy a holiday in their country of birth; the planes are almost all filled with fellow countrymen from the Netherlands and Suriname. On an annual basis, they account for as much as 85 to 90% of the market.

MAJOR TOURIST TARGET

An important group among these travellers is fellow countrymen born in the Netherlands. The so-called ‘second generation’, whose parents or one of them were born in Suriname. These children develop links to the Surinamese culture and especially the food from birth. They usually have friends in the Netherlands with a Surinamese background, but many do not know Suriname and are naturally very curious about their roots. This type of traveller would enjoy a discovery trip to Suriname and would prefer to stay in a hotel or apartment rather than with their uncle, aunt or grandmother. For this group, Does Travel & Cadushi Tours offers:

EXCLUSIVE AND UNIQUE TOURS

During this tour, within one week, we will provide a great overview of Suriname, historically, culturally and socially. There are several special tours where we introduce you to the people and their history; we also run our exclusive vegetable-fruit and fish tours.
These unique tours have been specially created and developed for the Back to your roots tours. The programme is completed within 1 week so you have plenty of time to yourself. The full programme and price are available on request.

SPECIAL BUSINESS TRIPS – ALL UNDER ONE ROOF

Suriname is made up of over 90% forests and is also rich in resources. In the past, bauxite was the main focus of the economy. Today, it is mainly the gold, oil and gas sectors that are flourishing. At the moment, quite a few businessmen and expats are making their way to Suriname. For them, it is important that everything is well organized. Not only the tickets but also the stay in Suriname needs to be organized flawlessly, so that top performances can be realised and time need not be wasted on peripheral issues. Does Travel & Cadushi Tours will offer leisure trips to Suriname as well as special business trips through its dedicated business department, starting this year. You can use the following services if you wish:

  • Special business and comfort class airfares
  • VIP service upon arrival at the airport
