Looking for a relaxed holiday in the jungle? Book flights to Suriname and go abseiling at Berg en Dal or dive into the brown water of Colakreek. Visit the beaches at the Galibi nature reserve and watch the giant turtles lay their eggs. Suriname is home to many different population groups. Discover life in the Indian and Maroon villages and stay in a laidback resort along the Suriname river.
The Suriname Amazon stretches from the Brownsberg nature reserve. Watch the monkeys swing in the trees and the pakira root through the forest. Or look for unique birds such as toucans and trumpeters. After a walk to one of the gurgling waterfalls, enjoy the mountain view over the Brokopondo reservoir. Have you worked up an appetite? Great, because the people of Suriname love to eat. Join the friendly locals for a plate of roti, a dish made with bread, chicken, potatoes and snake beans. Also taste the pom, an oven dish with chicken that is often served at celebrations. Wash it all down with a can of Fernandes, a typical Surinamese soft drink. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Suriname now!
Paramaribo is the only large city in Suriname; the rest of the country is mostly composed of jungle. Visit the Numismatic Museum, with its impressive coin and banknote collection, and admire the historic centre full of wooden colonial mansions. On Sunday, visit the Onafhankelijkheidsplein (Independence Square) where the popular Paramaribo bird market is held. Stroll by dozens of bird cages and listen to the bird calls. The loudest bird wins! Just outside the city lies the Commewijne district with its many plantations. Rent a bicycle and head down to Peperpot for a guided tour of a former coffee plantation. From here you can also board a canoe and explore the adjacent Peperpot Nature Park: a paradise for birdwatchers.
