The Tourist Information Center in Paramaribo should be your first stop in Suriname for a free walking tour map and pamphlets on anything you might be interested in. The office includes a Conservation International (CI) exhibit of different ecotourism projects in the country.
Suriname’s dry seasons, from early February to late April and from mid-August to early December, are the best times for a visit. From March to July, several species of sea turtles come ashore to nest at Wia Wia and Galibi reserves – truly a sight to behold. Most travelers visit July through August, when prices slightly inflate.
