Come discover Suriname -  Friendly, Pristine and Welcoming 

Suriname is a land of enormous cultural diversity and one of the few spots in the world where the tropical rainforest still completely virginal.

The Republic of Suriname is the second smallest nation of the South American continent (63.675 sq. miles), as well as the least explored and least densely inhabited tropical country in the world, with 420,000 inhabitants consisting mainly of Amerindians, Afro-Surinamers or Creoles, East Indians, Javanese and Chinese. About 90 percent of the Surinamese population resides in the country's costal area.


Suriname has tremendous ecotourism potential and in fact, was in the early 1970's one of the first countries to carry out successful rainforest tourism. Suriname has extraordinary ecotourism allure, an undisturbed rainforest wilderness and cultural attractions that are unique and mot to be found in the rest of South America. The country's unusual blend of African (including the Bushnegro cultures of the interior), Asian, European and native Amerindian culture elements contribute to Suriname's tourism appeal. These attractions offer significant opportunities for Suriname to capitalize upon its competitive advantage over other tropical tourism destinations.
