Paramaribo

3.6

Wooden City

With the chance to visit a World Heritage-listed inner city, tours of Paramaribo remain among the most culturally enriching things tourists can do in Suriname. As the country's main port, capital, and biggest urban area, the city boasts a well-preserved architecture of wooden colonial buildings, earning Paramaribo the nickname of "Wooden City." A vacation in Paramaribo provides visitors with an outstanding opportunity to discover Dutch heritage in this part of the world--Dutch is still the official language here, though you'll hear plenty of Sranantongo just by taking a casual walk down the city's busy streets. Paramaribo is in Paramaribo District. When using our Suriname trip itinerary planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.

Where to stay in Paramaribo

Paramaribo is packed with guesthouses, which make this town an extremely appealing destination for backpackers. The least expensive option in town, some of these establishments offer very basic rooms and shared restrooms without hot water--ask about on-site facilities before checking in. Dozens of mid-range hotels provide a more suitable option for families with kids, business travelers, and anyone else looking for a few more perks. If you're planning to stay longer, consider renting a furnished apartment in a residential neighborhood.
