Commewijne River, Paramaribo

(4.3/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.
