Paramaribo (pop.250,000) is the capital of Suriname, located on the banks of the Suriname River that enters the Atlantic Ocean 15 km downriver on the north coast of South America. Suriname borders with Guyana on the west, French Guiana on the east, and Brazil to the south. The city is named after the tribe living at the mouth of the river. The historic inner city of Paramaribo on the left bank is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Suriname’s official language is Dutch. Tourism is an increasingly important sector, with most visitors coming from the Netherlands.

This hot tropical city is famed for its diverse ethnic makeup, including Creoles, Indian, Maroons (descendants of escaped African slaves), Javanese, Indigenous, Chinese and others. The city is packed with wooden Dutch colonial buildings aside tree-lined streets. Pick up some tropical fruit at the central market, have local beer and salty fish at the riverside. The wreck of the German steamship Gostar is visible in mid-stream. Shopping for souvenirs at the many small shops is popular. The Maagdenstraat sells intricate Chinese jewellery. Head to the Blauwgrond quarter for Javanese food. Interestingly, of all Suriname’s notable people, the large majority have been footballers

The old colonial centre is best explored on foot. Notable landmarks that are a short walk from the cruise berth are: The 1640 wooden Fort Zeelandia near the port; the Presidential Palace (1730), one of the best examples of Dutch colonial architecture in Suriname; the Garden of Palms behind the Palace, home to royal palms, tropical birds and capuchin moneys; and Independence square with the National Assembly parliamentary buildings. Religious sites of interesting architecture include: Suriname Mosque, Neveh Shalom Synagogue (ne of the oldest synagogues in the Americas), the Arya Dewaker Hindu Temple, and the Roman Catholic Cathedral. Look for the Numismatic Museum, Paramaribo Zoo with local animals.
