Paramaribo ©
With the chance to visit a World Heritage-listed inner city, tours of Paramaribo remain among the most culturally enriching things tourists can do in Suriname.
Explore Paramaribo's surroundings by going to Neotropical Butterfly Park (in Lelydorp), Fort Nieuw Amsterdam (in Nieuw Amsterdam) and Reynsdorp (Warappa Kreek & Museum Bakkie). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Fort Zeelandia, meet the residents at Paramaribo Zoo, stroll around Brownsberg Nature Park, and don't miss a visit to Neveh Shalom Jewish Synagogue.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Paramaribo fast, fun, and easy.

New York City, USA to Paramaribo is an approximately 19-hour combination of car and flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Suriname Time (SRT), which is usually a 2 hour difference.
