Suriname: Rainforests & Coasts
Despite the fact that Suriname has been independent for the last 30 years, the country still remains very connected to the Netherlands. The capital, Paramaribo, is situated on the wide Suriname River and has many historical buildings that bear witness to Paramaribo’s heritage. The hinterland of Suriname remains pure and unspoiled, an ideal area to spot birds and animals. Suriname is a melting pot of cultures which makes it an interesting destination for delicious food. And of course the fact that the local people are so very welcoming and speak excellent Dutch, really makes a visit to this country really worthwhile.
