Paramaribo Zoo, Paramaribo

2.8
#1 of 6 in Outdoors in Suriname
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. Take the guesswork out of planning a Paramaribo vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
