Paramaribo — 7 nights

Wooden City

With the chance to visit a World Heritage-listed inner city, tours of Paramaribo remain among the most culturally enriching things tourists can do in Suriname.
Change things up with these side-trips from Paramaribo: Fort Nieuw Amsterdam (in Nieuw Amsterdam), Neotropical Butterfly Park (in Lelydorp) and Peperpot Nature Park (in Meerzorg). There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Saint Peter and Paul Basilica, steep yourself in history at Fort Zeelandia, take in the spiritual surroundings of Arya Dewaker Hindu Temple, and make a trip to Neveh Shalom Jewish Synagogue.

For reviews, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Paramaribo trip itinerary builder tool.

Cayenne, French Guiana to Paramaribo is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also drive. In April, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
