Commewijne River, Paramaribo

4.2
#1 of 16 in Parks in Suriname
Head along the banks of Commewijne River and past the plantations for a raft of colonial museums, lush parks, and restaurants. While water taxis are probably the easiest way to tour the river and its banks, energetic visitors can consider exploring on bikes--available for rent in town. Vistors have reported common dolphin sightings in the river's waters, so take a camera along and try to capture one on film. By using our Paramaribo tour planner , you can arrange your visit to Commewijne River and other attractions in Paramaribo.

  • Drive to a bridge and look out over this beautiful river and its vegetation. Also from the side or from a canoe it is fantastic.

  • Water of the river is Viesbruin. On the water side it stinks and lies a lot of dirt and waste. You smell the sewer discharges in the river as you walk along.
