This country is a real treasure! Located on the north east of South America, Suriname is a combination of tropical rainforest, roaring rivers, Dutch colonial history and great ethnic diversity.
Considered one of South America's smallest countries, Suriname is a warm, dense convergence of rivers that thumps with the lively rhythm of ethnic diversity. From Paramaribo, the country's effervescent Dutch-colonial capital, to the fathomless jungles of the interior, you'll get a genuine welcome to the country – whether from the descendants of escaped African slaves, Dutch and British colonialists, Indian, Indonesian and Chinese indentured laborers or indigenous Amerindians.
The Goverment of Suriname, Staatsolie and the Organising Committee invite all participants to this year´s SEOGS 2023 to take this opportunity and plan your stay before and after the event to explore all the fascinating sites this country has to offer.
