Suriname Warnings and Dangers

  • brownsberg

    we went there and they said its no bus coming anymore today.. so we walked up the hill^^it took us 5h!! it was already dark wenn we arrived!if you miss the bus at brownsweg, stay there overnight! it was no fun the other day with all the blisters :(

  • Mosquitos and other pests

    Mosquitos - they are all around you, wear a good insect repellant and cover up at night.Horse flies. Pesky little things, which bite as soon as you stand still. They are noisy little buggers, and large enough to spot as the buzz around you. Either keep moving or swat them with a hat, they do get fed up with being hit and actaully leave you alone...

  • Don't be caught Violating the Traffic...

    Don't be the unfortunate one to be caught violating the traffic rules because its penalty is very harsh or caught driving without a driver's licence this penalty I heard is almost 1million guilders.Robbery is at it minimal risk, the military policemen ensure there're safety.Always change your currency at a bank or cambio, to avoid con men around.

  • Although the people are really...

    Although the people are really friendly there are individuals who see foreigners as an easy trget. Take care and always use the banks currency transctions.

  • The only real danger I have...

    The only real danger I have experienced in Suriname is that one has to be very careful walking in the street during night, time preferebly take taxis which are not expensif. Do never travel out of town during night time, you may risk your life.

  • Book your excursions in...

    Book your excursions in advance at a renowned agency. Get your shots and pills (tuberculoses, hepatitis, malaria). Plan your trip with good atention and always make sure when you book something when you're in Suriname, you book it at a legilate office/agency.
