    In nine hours you fly from Western Europe to tropical Suriname, an ideal holiday destination - if you can miss palm beaches and amusement parks for a while. The country is rich in cultures whick gives the small cozy capital Paramaribo a vibrant and diverse character. Deeper inland dominates the jungle, impressive and charming at the same time. Travelers, backpackers and tourists bask in the tropical sun, giving in to the pleasant rhythm of life far from the hectic Europe and discover the secrets of piranha and mope. Enjoy a bright stars night on the warm rocks of Raleigh Falls, where the wishel of the flute frogs combnines with the sounds of the rapids, and know if there is a paradise, it is here.
  • Suriname, a former colony of The Netherlands, is more than four times the size of The Netherlands, with a population of little more than half a million. The population density is low: 4 people per km2 (compared Netherlands: 400 per km2). But a large part of Suriname is uninhabited, 80% is covered with tropical rainforest that Suriname also nicknamed The Green Caribbean. Around 90% of the population lives in a 50km wide strip along the Atlantic coast, easily explored with a rental car. The capital Paramaribo is located on the broad estuary of the Suriname River, 15 km from sea. Half of the total population of Suriname lives in Paramaribo.
  • The climate is hot and humid, but the almost constant northeast wind brings welcome relief. The average temperature is 27C. You will never be cold, at night the temperatures drops rarely drop below 23C.
  • The population includes the natives (Indians), maroons, Creoles, Chinese, Hindustani, Javanese, boeroes (whites), Jews and Lebanese.
  • The economy is based mainly on natural resources: bauxite, gold, oil, timber, agriculture, marine fisheries and tourism.

    A review on Tripadvisor

    We stayed for about 2 weeks at Kekemba and enjoyed it very much. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Our 2-room appartment was equipped with airco and flatscreen TV in bedroom and living room. The staff (Lloyd and John) are very helpful and beyond friendly. They know the region very well and provided us with a lot of useful advice for restaurants, sightseeing and other places to go.
