In good Dutch fashion, many people see Parbo and its environs, including the old plantations across the Suriname River, on bicycles. Helmets are rarely worn and are hard to rent. Road and mountain bikes are available for rent from SR$15 per day.


Most of Parbo's buses leave from Heiligenweg. Ask about schedules at points of departure or your guesthouse.


To get a city taxi, call 1690. Operators speak English, and fares – which use a meter system – are low.

Water Taxi

Fast and frequent water taxis leave from Platte Brug dock on Waterkant just south of Keizerstraat. Expect to pay SR$50 to cross to the far bank.
