  • PLUS POINT: A beautiful architecture on the outside, next to a synagogue. Right in the commercial centre-very easy to find. Paid parking (srd 5.00) on the site. Open to visitations. DOWNSIDE: simple inside and the principal rooms are closed to the public.

  • This building is an example of a modern religious architecture, and has little to do with the traditional wood architecture of the historic buildings. It stands as an odd duck among the other buildings.

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.
