    Stinasu includes three parks, of which Fungu Island (Raleigh falls) at the fall one Mother. This is the popular destination for young people who want to climb the Voltzberg. The solar power and batteries are excellent and avoid noise in the night. Also the 4 open rooms on the 1st floor of the room building are cool. However the camp is suffering from decay; There are hardly any more benches to sit on because most are rotten. One of the rooms is completely into disuse because rotten. The rain water collection system do not work; gutters are missing, broken or clogged. For days there is plastic waste in the verge. Is there anywhere against the 19 lines in smoked and are there butts; by each guide is there frequent and hard on the phone-and other trees; It is the Voltzberg overnight; We do need the life jackets not to (Fortunately, we can sit, because the ero benches in the dug-out canoe are hard; animals (tarantula, beavers, sloth) are molested; and the skull monkeys on site are fed daily. Some guidelines need to be adjusted or replaced. In the park (across the river) is a camp built by the president with cassava and banana plantation. The guides don't seem to be very motivated and complain that the head office does, but nothing to maintenance and brand new hotel at the foot of the Voltzberg construction. The Group dormitory with bunk beds is extra full and there are holes in the mosquito nets. In our room was the very cheap toilet seat broken.

    A pity that so little attention is from this Foundation for nature parks where they have control over. While the natural parks so much to both have for experiencing nature. The accommodations are not on international arrow.

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.
