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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Paramaribo: Peperpot Nature Park (in Meerzorg) and Fort Nieuw Amsterdam (in Nieuw Amsterdam). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Saint Peter and Paul Basilica, walk around Palmentuin, get a sense of history and politics at Presidential Palace, and contemplate the long history of Fort Zeelandia.

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.
