ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Suriname , the "beating heart of the Amazon" remains one of the few unspoiled destinations on the planet.
Almost 70% of its land is covered by tropical rain forest, and the country is home to a series of quality national parks, nature reserves and other protected areas.
Major attractions include Paramaribo, a "melting pot" of Chinese, Dutch, Hindustani, Indian and Javanese cultures, its old colonial-style wooden buildings, central market, Presidential Palace, Independence Square and historic Fort Zeelandia.
For adventure travelers, the interior regions of the country include many older plantation structures and eco-tours of the tropical rain forest. Note that most tour guides utilize Suriname's rivers, as travel by boat is expedient, and offers a wonderful opportunity to view the beauty of the country.
