Dutch-speaking Suriname is the smallest country in South America, but it packs in a remarkable biodiversity: it is home to the world’s bulkiest rodent, the Western Hemisphere’s largest cat and an exceptional 720 bird species. The UNESCO-listed capital Paramaribo is famed for its diverse ethnic mix and unique wooden architecture. And the forested interior is studded with opportunities for the curious traveller, from the vast Central Suriname Nature Reserve and plush Bergendal Eco-Resort to the bicycle-friendly plantation loop through Commewijne and sparkling rapids of the Upper Suriname.
Tourism in this beautiful and largely unspoiled destination is on the up. Highly experienced Bradt author Philip Briggs brings you this first-ever dedicated English-language guidebook to Suriname, an essential companion for anyone exploring the country.
