The beauty of Suriname
A holiday in Suriname is an unforgettable experience that you cherish for a lifetime. The tours to the interior where the Amazon rainforest is still intact and welcomes its visitors, are adventurous and impressive. With mountains, jungles, indigenous tribes and beautiful flora and fauna, Suriname has a lot to offer in terms of nature and culture. The Surinamese jungle offers endless possibilities for active holidays and adventure activities as well.
The beautiful cultures in Suriname
The unique blend of cultures makes Suriname a unique country. The different groups (Creoles, East-Indians, Javanese and Chinese) live peacefully together. Surinamese are proud that in Paramaribo a Jewish synagogue and a Muslim mosque brotherly stand next to each other. The Indigenous, the original inhabitants of Suriname, and the Maroons, descendants of runaway slaves, live deep in the pristine interior. An introduction to both cultures is a must during a visit to Suriname.
Nature in Suriname
Over 80% of the total land area of Suriname consists of rainforest and is one of the few destinations in the world where the tropical rainforest is still completely intact. The Suriname rainforest is nine times greater than that of Costa Rica in terms of area and covers most tropical rainforests worldwide, except for four African countries. In Suriname we find tropical mangrove forests, giant sea turtles and countless unique natural phenomena.
