Travel and housing are not included. We recommend booking at SLM, KLM or InselAir for your flights to Paramaribo. It’s best to book in or close to the city centre. The city is compact, but traffic can be hectic during rush hour.
Surinam is a beautiful tropical country with a small, but very diverse population. As global prices for Gold and Oil are dropping, the local economy is suffering a crisis and businesses are struggling to find new ways to survive. We think that introducing Appreciative Inquiry will help local businesses find what will make them prosper again.
