Paramaribo

3.5

Wooden City

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. As the country's main port, capital, and biggest urban area, the city boasts a well-preserved architecture of wooden colonial buildings, earning Paramaribo the nickname of "Wooden City." A vacation in Paramaribo provides visitors with an outstanding opportunity to discover Dutch heritage in this part of the world--Dutch is still the official language here, though you'll hear plenty of Sranantongo just by taking a casual walk down the city's busy streets. Add Paramaribo and other destinations to your itinerary using our Suriname travel route planner, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
