About Suriname

This is South America’s smallest country. Suriname is a diverse country made up of lush green countryside, a clever river/canal system (thanks to the Dutch) and relaxed people. Its population is a mix of Dutch and British colonists, Indonesian, Chinese, Indian, descendents of escaped African slaves and the indigenous Amerindians. This cultural mix of people offers a delicious cuisine. From Paramaribo, the country’s interesting Dutch-colonial capital, to the epic interior of the jungle, the welcome to visitors here is genuine.
