Suriname is heaven for nature lovers and is characterized by virgin rainforests, wildly churning rivers, magnificent falls and an unparalleled wealth of animal and plant life, as well as expansive savannahs and picturesque river beaches. The capital city of Paramaribo is a bustling city, full of attractions and restaurants. Half of the population lives in this excellently preserved historical capital.

Venture any distance from town and you’ll find yourself in the rampant wilderness. The southern hinterland of rainforest and savannah is largely unspoiled, and 13% of the country is now under official environmental protection. While other countries have roads, Suriname uses rivers: dugout canoes form key communication links between villages and small rural towns. In this remote region, just a handful of lodges offer a low-key, sustainable welcome to the few travelers who venture into our rainforests.

As an ex-Dutch colony, the main language is Dutch. In many ways, Suriname is quite un-South American. If you want to see a side of South America few others have experienced, this is the place to come. Let Does Travel & Cadushi Tours be your guide!
