For a geography challenge, ask a stranger to find Suriname on a map. The blank look you’ll likely receive is one of the reasons Lonely Planet guidebook refers to Suriname as one of the top “under-the-radar” travel destinations in the world. As the smallest of all the South American nations in both size and population, Suriname is easy to overlook.
The nation’s relative anonymity on the world stage is an advantage for travelers looking for a real adventure. Nestled at the top of South America between Guyana and French Guiana, Suriname offers a lightly settled Caribbean coastline and a dense, wild interior where visitors can immerse themselves in raw, unspoiled nature. By understanding the nation’s unique history, you can plan a vacation to Suriname that maximizes the country’s status as a last frontier while taking advantage of new biodiversity initiatives.
