Create an itinerary including Commewijne River
Head along the banks of Commewijne River and past the plantations for a raft of colonial museums, lush parks, and restaurants. While water taxis are probably the easiest way to tour the river and its banks, energetic visitors can consider exploring on bikes--available for rent in town. Vistors have reported common dolphin sightings in the river's waters, so take a camera along and try to capture one on film. By using our Paramaribo tour planner, you can arrange your visit to Commewijne River and other attractions in Paramaribo.

  • We saw several dolphins during taking the ferry from Johan en Margaretha and Fort Nieuw Amsterdam. This was not the short ferry trip most people do.

  • Gorgeous place! A fine mix of historic, nature and culture.
  • Korjalen - Surinamese wooden motor boats can be hired for a reasonable amount from Leonsberg to visit Fort New Amsterdam or just to spend a couple of hours dolphin watching.
