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.

Other choices of activities are kayaking, another nature hike but this time along the river, a boat ride down to Mui Mui ...
... That’s pretty much a south Asian fruit so can’t imagine why they have them here unless they are growing them. Don’t know the answer to that but since mangosteens tend to leave a stain if you get the juice on your clothes, I didn’t get any. Of course, later I was very sorry not to have any. The market had a few things I didn’t recognize but not much. The chicken sellers did not want ...

I am trying real hard to be diplomatic and polite but I start saying things like “hey, we are all over 60, what the heck are you doing getting in that line and let us in because the official told us to get in here” at which he told me that since we weren’t from Guyana or Suriname, we could just wait until everyone else had gone. So much for Christian goodness to strangers! Everyone for themselves at ...
... party. The national elections are later this year.
Next up was a visit to the sugar and rum plantation at Marienburg. We headed north to same on a road that was atop a dam. It was decrepit, buildings not able to speak of the forced labour and life of former times. We missed the tour with an 80 year old former employee but he came aboard to share a few nuggets.
We left at 1530 for Fort New Amsterdam a former prison. It was a bit odd with ...
Yet another day we went to chill at a recreational resort. This time at Overbridge we arrived around 11. Jumped in the water for a bit and played football. After some food we got so hot that it was dripping, so we jumped in the water for real. After lunch we had another swim until 4.30.
At that stage someone ran out of the water screaming "Everyone out of the water, everyone out of the water!!!" someone had been bitten by ...
