Discover Suriname

Home to lush tropical rainforests and a harmonious blend of traditions and cultures, Suriname is a destination made for adventure. It’s a place for relishing stunning landscapes and savoring delicious cuisine.


Suriname—formally known as the Republic of Suriname—is located on South America’s northern coast. It borders the Atlantic Ocean to the north, Brazil to the south, Guyana to the west, and French Guiana to the east. At one time, Suriname’s territory was part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and before gaining independence in 1975, it was also commonly known as Dutch Guiana.

Suriname’s largest city is the capital, Paramaribo, where around half the population of this tropical country lives. Paramaribo and other districts dot the northern coast, while to the south, dense swaths of lush rainforest nearly cover the landscape, with a handful of towns and villages scattered across the region. Getting here usually involves traveling by boat or in a small airplane. Suriname is known for its beautiful wood exports, and mining is the most important sector of the economy; the country’s mines produce gold, bauxite, and other metals.

Suriname’s official language is Dutch, and nearly everyone also speaks a creole language known as Sranan Tongo or Surinamese, which is a blend of Dutch, English, Spanish, Portuguese, and several other languages. Dating back to the days of plantations, Sranan Tongo has evolved with the passage of time. Suriname is also rich in culture. Its population, numbering just over 500,000, includes people from Africa, Europe, and Asia, as well as indigenous peoples. They all contribute their own customs, traditions, celebrations, beliefs, and foods, making Suriname an incomparable and irresistible destination.
