Make a fantastic trip private trip where you will have a guide all to yourself or join a group excursion!

Group excursions in Suriname

When you choose to travel alone, it is possible in Suriname to join group excursion for a day or multiple day trips to the jungle. According to many solo travelers, this is a really nice way of getting to know other people. You will never feel lonely and you’ll be able to have a lot of fun together while exploring the wonderful country of Suriname! Keep in mind that you have to pay a single fee if you want your own room because sharing it with a stranger would be weird, wouldn’t it?

According to our guest Alex, it was the best choice he made to book a private tour! Especially for him being a vegetarian! The guide who also was the cook allowed him in the kitchen and he helped to prepare Surinamese vegetarian cuisine. A program was set before but on the spot, it changed because Alex wanted to have time alone to meditate!

Alex also stated that this private solo trip was ’One of the best trips of my life. Got to know the country, locals, nature and had a lot of fun on the way! And ps 3 times a day a freshly cooked meal! I felt like a king!’

When you travel alone it is often the case that locals approach you sooner than when you travel with company. This leads to great conversations with locals which will give you a special memory of your holiday!

Is Suriname safe?

Yes, it is! Suriname and especially Paramaribo is a really relaxed place. However, it is important for you to use common sense when traveling alone. Make sure not to walk into rough areas at night and think about where you keep your wallet. And if you go to the center of Paramaribo in the evening it would be wise to take a taxi for a couple of SRD’s. This way you will not be wandering around by yourself.

Even if you are traveling alone the program will be sorted out beforehand. That’s why you will often find yourself in the company of other people, the guides, and other travelers during a group excursion. This makes it all the more fun!
