Bus & Minibus
Minibuses to Brownsberg and Atjoni (SR$50 to SR$70, three hours) leave from the corner of Prinsenstraat and Saramacastraat. Public buses to Nieuw Nickerie (SR$20 to SR$40, four hours) and other western destinations leave throughout the day from the corner of Dr Sophie Redmondstraat and Hofstraat. For a private minibus, ask your hotel for a list of prices and companies that will pick you up. To Albina, public buses (SR$8.50, 140km, three hours) leave hourly and private buses (SR$30, 3½ hours) leave when full from Waterkant at the foot of Heiligenweg.
Taxis are fast and many work on a share system. Most share taxis are minivans that hold up to eight people and if you leave town in the morning, they fill quickly. Expect to pay SR$70 per person to Albina and SR$100 per person to Nieuw Nickerie. Ask your hotel to contact a driver for you.
