Tailor-made travel to Suriname, sometimes written as Surinam, is the best way to explore this emerging Amazonian destination. Wild but welcoming, Suriname travel is the chance to explore an often-overlooked corner of the continent.
The capital Paramaribo has a unique blend of European and Asian influences, with Dutch colonial architecture sitting alongside mosques and a Roman Catholic cathedral. The city's cuisine is equally varied.
Suriname comprises 80 percent rainforest, with numerous bird and animal species found beneath the canopy. The forests are also home to indigenous tribes. The Galibi Nature Reserve is world famous as a nesting site for endangered turtles; otherwise travel to Palumeu, where local Amerindians act as guides and share their knowledge.
Take a river cruise along the country's waterways alternatively, cruise along the Tapanahoni and Palumeu Rivers and then take to the trails to hike up Mount Kasikasima.
