When to Visit

Suriname enjoys a tropical climate with two rainy seasons (December - August), moderated by the northeastern trade winds. For ideal weather, plan your visit between February - April or August - November to enjoy sunny beach days and dry hiking trails. Be mindful that high season falls between July and August and during December, meaning higher prices and more crowds. For an economical and quiet holiday, consider visiting between April and June where the showers bring verdant landscapes to life, making the country an even more vibrant exhibit of nature's splendour.
