#3 of 38 in Things to do in Suriname
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • In an hour you have seen waterfront, there are not really stores or terraces. The houses here are particularly to see, unfortunately is all in bad shape this like actually quite Paramaribo. At the bus stop is now a nice shop with covered terrace at the water.

  • 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.
