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.
Get out of town with these interesting Paramaribo side-trips: Nieuw Amsterdam (Hindustan Mosque, Fort Nieuw Amsterdam, & more), Reynsdorp (Warappa Kreek & Museum Bakkie) and Lelydorp (Pikin Sranan & Neotropical Butterfly Park). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Fort Zeelandia, stroll around Palmentuin, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Paramaribo Zoo, and get a sense of history and politics at Presidential Palace.
