Waterkant (Riverside Boulevard), Paramaribo

3.5
Stoll along under the shade of almond trees and see the 19th-century colonial style houses at Waterkant (Riverside Boulevard). Watch the commerce of ships in the harbor and cars moving along the distant bridge in one of the oldest parts of Paramaribo. Have a sip of Surinamese beer and grab some local dishes, such as bami (meat noodles) or kip sate (skewered meat), from the typical Indonesian warungs (small family restaurants), which remain open until late at night. The nearby attractions include the main square and presidential palace.

  • This route provides a glimpse into a main street that remains much as it did over a hundred years ago.  more »
  • We are during the day, not much going on. It fell very against after the hugely exciting stories about waterfront. Perhaps rather too great expectations. Very nice buildings.

  • It's a little fleabag at the food stalls on the waterfront. And there are also many bums around on the benches. We have not eaten, it looked not too attractive.

  • Beer with the locals. I can imagine that not everyone here will feel pleasant in the evening. There are also strange birds around.

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.
