Paramaribo

— 5 nights

Wooden City

With the chance to visit a World Heritage-listed inner city, tours of Paramaribo remain among the most culturally enriching things tourists can do in Suriname.
When in Paramaribo, make a side trip to see Peperpot Nature Park in Meerzorg, approximately Meerzorg away. There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Peter and Paul Basilica, explore the activities along Commewijne River, ponder the world of politics at Independence Square (Onafhankelijksplein), and admire all the interesting features of Waterkant (Riverside Boulevard).

For reviews, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, go to the Paramaribo travel planner.

Washington, USA to Paramaribo is an approximately 19-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Washington to Paramaribo.

The smallest country in South America, Suriname features thick jungles, rushing rivers, and lively, culturally diverse places to visit. Independent since 1975, Suriname retained the Dutch language and influences, as well as the Caribbean and the culture of its indigenous tribes. A third of the country's landscape is made up of natural reserves, providing tourists the opportunity to explore lush tropical rainforests, pristine beaches, scenic rivers and waterfalls, as well as a staggering variety of animals and birds. On a trip to Suriname you shouldn't pass up a visit to its capital and only city, World Heritage-listed Paramaribo, noted for its colonial-era architecture.
