  • If you are going to rent a car (this is an obligation of the insurance companies) or if you still want to drive in Suriname after a 14-day stay (for example, you drive a family member's car), you must be in possession of an international driver's license (via the USA AAA ) or obtain a local "drive-approval certificate". Given the high cost of this certificate, the waiting time and the fact that you do not want to arrange this kind of thing in your holiday we strongly recommend you to come with an international driving license to Suriname.

A review on Tripadvisor

Apartments very good. Good a/c. Quiet environment, but not far from city centre. Sufficient parking place on the spot. Resort feels safe and secure. Friendly owners. Nice pool and hammocks. Rental car recommended as it is too far to walk to the city. On a scale from 1 to 10 we rate Kekemba a 9.
