Suriname

Suriname packs an enormous punch for such a small country. Criss-crossed with rivers and swathed in Amazonia’s oldest roots, it is a pioneering holiday destination ideal for nature enthusiasts.

Besides being the smallest independent country in South America, Suriname remains the colonial home of the Dutch and has a diverse mix of European, African and Amerindian cultures. These cultures have fused together creating an eclectic blend of food, music and culture.

What to expect on your Suriname holiday

Its vivacious capital, Paramaribo, is a bustling port with lively markets and an jumble of 18th and 19th century buildings, yet beyond the Atlantic coast Suriname’s main attraction lies in a sparsely populated interior blanketed by a dense and untamed rainforest which covers some 80% of the country.

James Armitage

Rewind to 1981 (yes a long time ago) where, as a young and naive gringo ready to explore the world, I boarded a plane to Santiago, Chile. My Spanish was limited to “dos cerveza por favour”, but I was eager to discover a new continent and meet new friends – an adventure that has since become a nearly 40-year love affair.
