Where to stay in Surinam
Paramaribo has a number of modern hotels with air conditioning, but advance booking is essential owing to the limited number of beds. A 10% service charge is added. There are several small guest houses and pensions in the city and elsewhere, but it is advisable to check with the tourist office for further information. Hotels and restaurants are rare outside the capital, and travellers are advised to bring their own hammock and food. For further information, contact Surinam Tourism Foundation (see Contact Addresses).
