TravelPod Member ReviewsCourtyard by Marriott Paramaribo
For me, this is the only choice for a place to stay when I am in Paramaribo. The only downside is the hotel is not closer to some of the sites and tourist destinations in town. The upside includes the fact that it is a Marriott, so one knows what to expect. Another biggie for me is the staff. They are always very kind and accommodating.
I have stayed in three different types of rooms; standard, Jacuzzi, and river view. I believe my favorite is the river view. It is relaxing to go out on the veranda and watch the activity on the river.
The food at the hotel is very good.

It is probably the most diverse of any country I have been to, and you can see this fusion of all cultures morphed into their cuisine.

... its lip was probably numb by this time. No one dared to do it, so I knelt down on my knees, another person held the dog, and as i grabbed its snout in one hand, the hook in my other hand. Another local guy counted down for me as he could see that I didn't like to do what I had to do because it would hurt the dog. As he counted down, with that motivation I managed- in one go, the hook came out, and we all lived happily ever after. At least I left with a good feeling!
... are more today than years back.
Bakki used to be a well known town, known for its rich plantations. After the slavery in 1863 plantations were abandoned and there was not much left of the landscapes. However, some years ago Marsha Mormon returned to Suriname from Holland to find her roots of her ancestors who worked as slaves, together with her husband, Bas Spek. After finding a plantation they managed to dig out a ...

The programmed 'demonstration of traditional culture' now complete, we returned to the jeep for more bumpy driving, this time along white sand tracks through low-growing vegetation. Eventually we came to a tidy encampment where, after some hanging around, the contents of ...
