#1 of 7 in Outdoors in Suriname
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
The only zoo in Suriname, Paramaribo Zoo has survived for 40 years to finally see an increase in visitors over the past decade or so. You'll have a chance to observe a variety of animals in captivity, including several monkeys, caimans, jaguars, red ibis, king vultures, boa constrictors, and anacondas. Pack your own supplies of snacks and drinks, as no kiosks or shops operate on site. Consider renting a bicycle for your trip to the zoo, which isn't far from downtown Paramaribo.

  • What afgrijzelijk. This they should ban it. Jaguars in far too small cabins. That the same 24-hour round of frenzied fun walk. The restaurant is very very expire and you eat here rather nothing.

  • What to say of Paramaribo Zoo ..... Not great, fairly well taken care of, but the place that the animals have Is quite small and may appear blank. Moderate pleasure.

  • We are here by the zoo. It is a great place for an hour of entertainment. To be perfectly honest, I find the stay very small for the animals. My sense of pathetic was very large.

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.
