Paramaribo is a UNESCO World Heritage City recognized as an exceptional example of European architecture fused with indigenous South American influences. Indeed, the adventure traveller setting foot in Suriname is immediately delighted by countless fine (and occasionally crumbling) examples of that tropical Dutch colonial architecture, not to mention the spectacle of a Hindu temple, a Jewish snyogogue, a Christian church, and an ornate mosque sitting immediately adjacent to each other in the city centre. Set several days aside to explore various 17th century fortresses and colonial relics that surround “Parbo”, including Nieuw Amsterdam , Fort Zeelandia, and one of the Western Hemisphere’s first Jewish settlements, Jodensavanne.
Some hotels will let you use their facilities (gym, spa, pool, beach, etc.) for a reduced day pass. This can be great for layovers!
