Suriname: climate

Travel times

The idea of what is meant by a particularly favorable travel climate depends on a number of factors. The ideas of pure culture travelers are certainly completely different from those of people who want to spend a pure beach holiday. Health or age can also play an important role. Suriname has a tropical climate. That means it rains all year round, it is very warm. The humidity is high. There are two rainy seasons: a small one from December to February and a large one from April to mid-August. The northeast trade wind mitigates the heat on the coast, which is without a doubt the most attractive region in the country for tourists. The rainforest in the interior of the country is a little hotter, with most rains falling in the center and southeast of the country. The months that are not in the rainy season are recommended for travel, especially since dangerous landslides and floods can occur during the rainy season. People who prefer a temperate climate should avoid Suriname or, if necessary, go to the coast in autumn.

Climate table

The following table shows some important climatic data for the country. However, it should be taken into account that these are only average values that only permit very limited conclusions to be drawn about the current weather. For example, temperatures above 40 C can occur in August, but also temperatures just above 20 .

Suriname: Sightseeing

UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Central Suriname Nature Reserve

The Central Suriname Nature Reserve was created through the amalgamation of various national parks, the total area of all parks is approx. 16,000 km². Around 80% of the tropical rainforest lies untouched in the area of the Coppename River, which has its source in the Wilhelmina Mountains, has many tributaries, where the Raleigh Falls plunge down and flows into the Atlantic.

The estuary exposed to the flood is 150 km long. This area connects all parks, the Raleigh waterfalls, Table Mountain and the Eilerts de Haan Mountains. The biodiversity of plants and animals is very large, not least because of the different landscapes. There is the lowland rainforest, mountain regions and floodplains.

The trees in the rainforest are sometimes up to 50 m high and covered by plants to catch light up there. In lower areas, palm trees grow close together. The area is a paradise for animals. Otters, jaguars, many species of monkeys, sloths and tapirs live here. The species diversity of the bird world is immense, over 600 different species were counted.

The nature reserve was placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2000
