Commewijne River, Paramaribo

4.3
#1 of 11 in Parks in Suriname
Head along the banks of Commewijne River and past the plantations for a raft of colonial museums, lush parks, and restaurants. While water taxis are probably the easiest way to tour the river and its banks, energetic visitors can consider exploring on bikes--available for rent in town. Vistors have reported common dolphin sightings in the river's waters, so take a camera along and try to capture one on film.

  • From Paramaribo to Leonsberg driven (20 to 25 minutes.) There on a rented canoe with Bakker stepped and the commewijne River ascended to dolphins. We were very lucky and have quite a few dolphins. Afterwards by dangers to Braamspunt at the mouth of the river and the Atlantic Ocean. Here come the 8-edged giant turtles lay their eggs. A lot of turtles nests found. Then to frederiksdorp hazards, this is an old historical plantation, on which a number of houses are of more than 200 = 300 year old who completely restored. Beautiful village. A good young enthusiastic guide has shown around us. and fun anecdotes told. After the old plantation frederiksdorp Rust en Werk visited

  • Dolphins spotted several times on tours across the river. Sunset tour is popular, but also heard that you have much greater chance of dolfijenen around noon. Various providers of tours available.
