Suriname is an amazing, beautiful country with very friendly and helpful people, we highly recommend it
For many years we have been travelling with groups, but we could not find an organization that offers trips to Suriname exactly like we wanted. Often too short or in combination with Curaçao. Through Google I found the website of Better Places and our trip was custom-made with the help of Lizet. In short: we have had a great trip and visited all the places we wanted to see. Suriname is an amazing beautiful country with very friendly and helpful people, we highly recommend it. Lizet, thanks again for this fantastic holiday!

Better Places offered us a perfectly customized trip, the highlight being our 4 day stay in Gunsi
We, two 65-year-olds, had a perfect stay in Suriname. We didn’t really want to go completely organized, but instead to keep it personal and leave space for our own wishes. Better Places offered us a perfectly customized trip, the highlight being our 4 day stay in Gunsi. We had a more than excellent guide and basic but pleasant huts. We enjoyed the Sarramacan culture. In short: highly recommended. The bike ride along the Commewijne is excellent to do with the beautiful and calm Frederiksdorp. In short, in addition to all activities undertaken by us, we have really enjoyed the trips and accommodations offered by Better Places in Paramaribo, Berg en Dal and Gunsi.

The local guides who joined us everywhere are all true ambassadors for their country and culture.
Our trip in Surinam was a pleasant mix of nature, culture and relaxation. We had the privilege to experience the historic city of Paramaribo, the Maroon culture in Gunsi, the Indian village Palumeu the jungle in various facets, the Savannah Area with his Coke Water, the Blommenstein Reservoir and the Brown Mountain, the bird-rich wetland Bigi Pan, old plantations and the diverse food culture . Words such as “to hammock” (lying in a hammock) and “to parbo” (parbo is a beer type, preferably comes in a 1 litre bottle: the Djogo) for us are unforgettable! The local guides who joined us everywhere are all true ambassadors for their country and culture.
