Nature of Suriname - national parks and reserves for active recreation

The hot tropical climate of Suriname is softened by good rains. February and March are always quite dry, followed by a long rainy season until August. Then comes the second dry season, and its last month, November, is always the driest of the year. A short rainy season lasts from December to January. February and March are the best months to visit Suriname, since at this time there are usually no heavy rains or strong heat, and tourists can enjoy the wonderful nature of the country with its parks, forests, reserves, and rivers without any weather obstacles.
Good shopping opportunities are always a nice bonus to vacations in any country. When there is a desire to buy something unusual and memorable, or …

Residents of Suriname care for the environment, the territory of this small country accommodates many protected areas. Brownsberg Nature Park located nearly a hundred kilometers from the capital is a peaceful place with a clean lake, a 500-meter plateau, and two beautiful waterfalls - a paradise for hiking enthusiasts. The park is home to many birds and animals like the red howler and the agouti. Brownsberg has been functioning as a nature reserve for half a century. Now it's really hard to imagine that gold was mined here in the 19th century.
The largest and most famous in Suriname is the Central Suriname Nature Reserve in the Guianan moist forests. It has the magnificent Raleigh Falls, a savannah, dense forests, marshlands, Table Mountain with a flat top, and the country's highest peak, Julianatop. Electric eels, jaguars, hundreds of bird species and an incredible number of other animals live in the reserve. Many of them are extremely rare, endangered or found only in South America. Clean air and freshness of the waterfall help to forget about dusty cities for a long time. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Wia Wia Nature Reserve in Marowijne is also home to turtles and seabirds nesting in mangroves, including rare species like the scarlet ibis. Peaks conquerors must head to Kassikassima Mountain in the central part of Suriname. The mountain is perfect for climbing, and from its top, you can admire the splendor of Surinamese nature.
Paramaribo, Suriname Along the Commewijne River in the north of Suriname, there are not only abandoned coffee and cocoa plantations, but also good cycling trails. Bicycles are available for rent nearby. Riverbanks are ideal for walking, and for a small fee you can book a boat tour and watch dolphins showing up here and there from the water and, in turn, watching tourists. In Albina, there is the river Marowijne, along which the bravest tourists ride - waters of this river flowing into the Atlantic Ocean are often choppy.
This interesting and picturesque country can offer more than magnificent nature. Travelers will find here unique architectural and historical …

Boat excursions are held on the Nickerie River in the port city of Nieuw-Nickerie. It is inhabited by river dolphins who are comfortable with people, and the banks are overgrown with jungle, which gives the journey a touch of “wildness” and isolation from civilization. Those who want to just take a walk and get acquainted with locals should go to Paloma village where about a hundred indigenous people live. Here you can spend the whole day - that's how idyllic houses on a hill covered with lush grass look. The village lies on the confluence of the rivers Paloma and Tapanahomi.
Paramaribo Meaningful tourism implies a careful attitude to nature, and all tourists should remember that not only their native countries' nature must be protected. The lands of small Suriname, waters of its warm rivers, clear lakes and noisy waterfalls, mountains and hills, lush forests and wetlands are all under the vigilant control of the government trying to protect and preserve natural resources and the huge numbers of living creatures that inhabit the country.

The hotel is open in a former bank building that dates back to 1923. To make the building suitable for a luxury hotel, the former bank underwent a complete transformation. The hotel has 204 rooms with elegant design, which are located on the 7 floors of the building. It is very simple to reach the new hotel in The Hague from the Central Station – the tram ride lasts only ten minutes. A ride to the seaside lasts only a bit longer – nearly 15 minutes. Read this
