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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Paramaribo: Pikin Sranan (in Lelydorp), Warappa Kreek (in Commewijne District) and Fort Nieuw Amsterdam (in Nieuw Amsterdam). Spend the 11th (Tue) surrounded by wildlife at Tafelberg Nature Preserve. There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Saint Peter and Paul Basilica, ponder the world of politics at Independence Square (Onafhankelijksplein), explore the activities along Commewijne River, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Palmentuin.

Traveling by car from Nieuw Nickerie to Paramaribo takes 4 hours. In September, plan for daily highs up to 39°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
