For trips to the interior, national parks or nature reserves we recommend using one of a number of reliable and well organized tour operators.
Here are our favorites:
STINASU - Stichting Natuurbehoud Suriname
Founded in June 1969, its mission is to preserve the nature of Suriname by conducting research, providing nature education and organizing nature tourism activities in the nature reserves and nature park of Suriname.
Founded by Dr. Johan Schulz, then former Head Forester of the Forestry Department, STINASU is an effective way to conduct research and provide nature education without strict financial support from the government. Since it is a semi-governmental organization, funding is drawn from nature tourism activities in the nature reserves and nature park of Suriname.
Movement for Eco-Tourism in Suriname
Participation on one of the METS tours is a sure guarantee for a memorable trip while you are at the same time contributing, through eco-tourism, to the protection of the indigenous population and the environment and in so doing help to develop these in a responsible manner.
