South America’s Best Kept Secret
Discover a land filled with wonders on this exciting journey to Guyana and Suriname
Found on the north-eastern coast, Suriname is South America’s smallest country. Known for its nature reserves and protected parkland (13% of the country is now under official environmental protection) it is an ecotourism paradise. Away from the main town you will be welcomed into the wilderness – Suriname still uses river as connection links between small villages and rural towns and it is mainly covered in rainforest.
The capital, Paramaribo, is one of South America’s most diverse capitals. Colonial Dutch buildings line grassy squares, whilst mosques, cathedrals and Hindu temples sit side by side.
The main attraction of Surinam is its tropical rainforest and wildlife that reside here. You can enjoy a boat tour and sport nesting leatherback turtle, or search for the Amazon river dolphins, monkeys and the elusive jaguar.
