Suriname’s tourist industry is still in its infancy as few tourists venture here. Best combined with Guyana and French Guiana, Steppes Travel and the Latin America team have been organising holidays to these little visited countries for over 10 years.
Suriname packs an enormous punch for such a small country. Criss-crossed with rivers and swathed in Amazonia's oldest roots, Suriname is a pioneering destination for nature enthusiasts.
Besides being the smallest independent country in South America, Suriname remains the colonial home of the Dutch, and has a diverse mix of European, African and Amerindian cultures. These cultures have fused together creating an eclectic blend of food, music and culture.
Its vivacious capital Paramaribo, is a bustling port with lively markets and an ensemble of 18th and 19th century buildings, yet beyond the Atlantic coast lays a sparsely populated interior blanketed by a dense and untamed wilderness steeped in adventure.
