Suriname

Suriname is located on South America. It is bordered by French Guiana, Guyana, Brazil, and the Atlantic Ocean. The river border with French Guiana is disputed between both nations’ governments.

Of all the independent nations of both North and South America, Suriname is the only nation where Dutch is the official language. People of various ethnicities and cultures live on Suriname, with the population nearing 500,000. Sadly, much of the country is still mired in poverty.

Suriname is full of beautiful Amazon rain forests. These dense forests, one of the many wonders that can be found on the South American continent, have some of the greatest biodiversity in the world. The forests are full of rare plants and animals. After exploring the sections of the forests open to the public, tourists can spend time in the historic city of Paramaribo. Within the city, visitors will find great shops, boutiques, fine restaurants, and trendy nightclubs. Tourists visiting Suriname should be aware that traveling around the island can be difficult, and since there many different languages spoken among locals, communication can be problematic.
