With the chance to visit a World Heritage-listed inner city, tours of Paramaribo remain among the most culturally enriching things tourists can do in Suriname.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Neotropical Butterfly Park and Neveh Shalom Jewish Synagogue. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Paramaribo: Reynsdorp (Museum Bakkie & Warappa Kreek) and Pikin Sranan (in Lelydorp). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Het Koto Museum, browse the different shops at Hermitage Mall, take in the spiritual surroundings of Arya Dewaker Hindu Temple, and paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour.
