The small South American country of Suriname is defined by its vast tropical rainforest, Dutch colonial architecture and multi-ethnic culture. Its coastal capital of Paramaribo is home to towering religious structures and remnants of the Dutch and British colonialists who inhabited the city. As you venture inland on your luxury Suriname holidays, forests entice with their magnificent settlements of Amerindians the Maroons, who escaped slavery and fled to the major river backs of the jungle.

POCKET GUIDE TO SURINAME
Suriname’s capital and largest city, with its multilingual residents and black & white colonial Dutch architecture, is tremendously, ethnically diverse. Mosques, synagogues, churches and Hindu temples sit alongside each other in perfect harmony and wafts of spices emanate from Indian roti shops. The perfect city to commence your Suriname holiday, the inner city is a cornucopia of historical architecture and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002. The well restored, star-shaped, 18th-century Fort Zeelandia is well worth a visit as is the fascinating Central Market.
Combine with Guyana & French Guiana
Consider combining your luxury holiday to Suriname with an exploration of Guyana & French Guiana. Start in Georgetown, visiting its various museums and monuments as well as day-tripping to Kaieteur Falls. On arrival in Suriname, spend a night in the Danpaati rainforest. Bring the trip to a close in French Guiana with tours of the Space Station in Kourou and Devil’s Island prison.
