Loading Suriname…


Suriname is a small republic on the northeast coast of South America. It prides itself on its thoroughly multi-ethnic culture, a colourful blend of indigenous Indian traditions and those of its former Dutch colonisers and the African, Javanese and Hindustan workers they once brought with them.

Paramaribo, often called Par'bo, is the lively capital and only city of the sparsely inhabited country of Suriname.

The East Coast region of Suriname comprises the four districts: Commewijne, Marowijne, Paramaribo and Wanica.

The Surinamese Rainforest region comprises the three districts: Brokopondo, Para and Sipaliwini.

The West Coast region of Suriname comprises the three Surinamese coastal districts between Paramaribo and the western border with Guyana: Coronie, Nickerie and Saramacca.
