My girlfriend and i like to go to Suriname.
The only possibility to go for us, is from 1 july till 15 july
In the rainseason...
How bad is it?
Just an hour of heavy rainfull in the afternoon?
Or days of rain...
We like to visit Parimaribo, and the forrest.
Lot of forrest.
Please help us out.
We've spend about a week in Suriname, staying mainly in Paramaribo.
You can read all about the costs, where we stayed and what we did on our blog:
Feel free to ask us anything, as we were there a few weeks ago.

I am interested in traveling to Suriname over Christmas for a couple of weeks. I realize it is rainy season, however I am wondering how bad this rainy season is. For example is it like other areas where during rainy season it rains all day or does it clear up if we wanted to do some biking. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Salam : )
We're a pair traveling next month (one US, one Canadian citizenship) from Guyana to Suriname, to French Guinea, back to Suriname, & leaving out of Guyana again.
A site that I'm looking at says that visas for Suriname are possible upon arrival, but recommends sending away for it, which 30 days out, we are cutting it close. There was no requirements couple years back from what I recall.
Anyone with any info they can share on this and if the second entry into Suriname will be a problem as well.
Also, any experience on if rental cars are allowed into Suriname & French Guinea from Guyana or is it a nay as our guide book which is a few years old now mentions??
Thanks for any guidance in advance,
I'll be travelling overland from Venezuela to Brazil through the Guianas and I was wondering if anybody can tell me what they would recommend to do in Suriname for a week or two? Is it an expensive country? What is the nightlife like? Museums?
I know this is a vague topic as what I enjoy doing is not that you would enjoy doing etc. but I'm really laid back and enjoy most things plus I'm more interested about hearing what other people have done there to get an idea and then I will make my own mind up.
Thanks in advance
Im looking for someone to travel with in Suriname and French Guyana. I have 6 weeks of holiday around July 2013. Anybody up for going? Ive travelled Guyana a couple of years ago and looooved it!
Starting around 4-8 January we intend to make an 8 day jungle expedition to Kwamalasumutu in the deep southwest of Suriname (close to the border with Brazil). The tour is not frequenlty made and from the description it seems a very adventureous and unique experience. Also you visit 5000 year old rock paintings, discovered in 2001.
Info on the expedition (in Dutch): http://www.thatsittours.com/bestemmingen/expedities/kwamalasamutu-sipaliwini-4-gebroeders
The minimum number of participants is 4, and we are only 2, so if anyone wants to join.. :)
Hi there, I'm trying to find out if there is any ferry service between Suriname and Trinidad? Thanks for any help.JB
Hi: I want to take a bus from Georgetown, Guyana to the Suriname border; then a bus to Prado in Suriname; I want to rent a car in Prado and explore Suriname; anybody done this; is it feasible and safe? thanks.
I want to purchase a hammock & mosquito net in Paramaribo.
Where can I get a cloth hammock and a good mozzie net ?
any suggestions for a Paramaribo hotel ?
I am an Italian citizen and have been living on the french side of Saint-Martin since October. I have been invited by a friend to go to Suriname with him. Unfortunately, I need a visa to enter Suriname. Inselair will let me spend a night in Curracao at no extra cost. Will a whole morning + afternoon be enough for me to obtain a tourist visa at the Suriname consulate? Will they be open on a Wednesday (July 11)? What will I need to bring with me?
I cannot find any information whatsoever about the Suriname consulate in Curracao. Just a phone number that is always busy.
Many thanks to anybody who has any info!
I have a 7:15AM flight out of the airport. Seems like $50US for a taxi. Any alternatives to get to the airport? Are there hotels in the town of Zanderij? Leaving friday.
I need some help.
I assume it is the Port of Cadiz, am I correct with my assumption?
Secondly, if it is Cadiz what shipping lines travel to and from directly to Paramaribo.
Thanks in advance.
I've recently finished a trip across the Guyanas where I passed through Suriname, stopping for a few days in Paramaribo which I found to be a very interesting and pleasant place. I've written up my experiences there (and for French Guiana and Guyana) on my website which I think can help other travellers plan their trips. If you want to read up more about Paramaribo or other places in the area take a look at:
Hope you find the reviews useful.
