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.
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.
