Suriname Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 38%, Suriname is one of those places that you either love or hate, depending on the type of PlanetHopper! that you are. Nothing here is quite as easy as it is in other South American countries - be it transport, ease of communication, or just access to simple luxuries. But with all of this said, Suriname offers a refreshing, back to basics travel experience that is becoming more and more rare to find in the world. This is perhaps highlighted best by the Central Suriname Nature Reserve, a world class UNESCO-rated reserve that takes the ideal of undiscovered wilderness to a whole new level. The reserve is more in line with what the Brazilian system would have been like 50 years ago, before the advent of mass tourist. Getting to this area may be tough, but once here, you will more often than not have the place to yourself for the adventure of a lifetime. Then, after you satisfy every Indiana Jones desire that you've ever had, you can return to the capital of Paramaribo, where you clean off the dust from the road and embrace a vibrant culture that's the result of the mingling of Dutch, British, African and Indigenous bloodlines. Awesome!
