Day 1 : Arrival - City Tour - Dolphin Spotting

Arrival: In the early morning you'll arrive at the J.A.P international airport. If you're traveling with American airlines it's between 12.30AM and 02.00AM Transfer from Airport (included) to Hotel/Guesthouse (not included). -- 09.00AM: City Tour by car to see the highlights of Paramaribo. The name Paramaribo is probably derived from the name of an Indian village, called Parmurbo. A trading post was established in the village at the beginning of the 17th century. This was taken over by the English and they built a fort called Willoughby. In 1667 Abraham Crijsen conquered the area. From the fort Paramaribo was extended to the west. After the abolition of slavery in 1863 and the end of indentured labor in 1873, many people moved to the city. Paramaribo, the capital of Suriname Is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2002. The place has many buildings of historical importance and religious significance. Since 2002, the center of Paramaribo has been placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List of historical monuments. One of the protected buildings is the St. Peter and Paul Cathedral on the former Gravenstraat. This building is entirely made of wood and is also the largest wooden building in South America. You will visit the highlights of Paramaribo such as; the Jewish synagogue and the mosque fraternally next to each other, the colonial building of the free Negress Elisabeth Samson, the wooden cathedral, Palmentuin, Fort Zeelandia, and the Independence Square and Presidential Palace are also on the program. -- 16.00PM: Sunset & Dolphin Tour Sunset & Dolphin Tour is in the afternoon to spot the pink belly river dolphins also known as the “profosu”/ Sotalia guianensis in its natural habitat. At 4 pm you’ll meet the guide in Leonsberg (about 15-20 minutes by taxi from the center of Paramaribo) where a wooden tent boat is ready. One of the first and most important rules is putting on the life jackets. At the end of the day, get a breath of fresh air on the river during this 3-hour relaxing trip. While enjoying a drink we go in search of the dolphins. Once you’ve spotted them, the party starts! The more excited you are and clapping your hands, the more excited the dolphins will be. They then jump out of the water. Then we eat some local snacks at one of the former plantation Rust & Werk and we can enjoy the breathtaking sunset. As dusk falls, there are cozy lights on board and we sail back at a leisurely pace.
