Paramaribo Downtown

Paramaribo is a city of many contrasts. It is home to just over a third of the population of the entire country. The city is facing the sea, which means that, although the intensity of the Sun can be inclement due to our proximity to the equator, a fresh breeze always blows. There is always fresh air, the air is constantly renewed. And in the afternoons, the refreshing breeze accompanies you to walk and stroll through its streets, many of them beautiful and full of history. Many vestiges of ancient architecture still remain, and great efforts have been made to restore damaged buildings and houses. The historic center of the city was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2002.

In the afternoons, when you walk around Fort Zeelandia, you can see many birds returning to their tree houses and many parrots. The hubbub is incredible. Walking through the narrow streets and heading towards the pier is a wonderful experience.
