Downtown Oasis Guesthouse

Verified: about 2 months ago
GPS: 5.830062, -55.155380
Alt.: 36.0 masl
Truly a fitting name - this place IS an Oasis. We checked out 4 other properties in Paramaribo and this one is the best. It is family owned and all of the staff they have onsite are welcoming, professional and helpful. The rooms are CLEAN, modern and beautifully furnished with desks, flat screen TVs, armoires, mini-fridges and SUPER comfortable beds. Hot and cold water and air conditioning add to the level of comfort. There is a common living room, well-outfitted and spacious kitchen. Outdoors, there is an above ground pool and a covered patio with tables, chairs and hammocks. The laundry machine is huge and costs €3. We paid €37,50 per night for the nicest room we have stayed in in all of South America. There is a €10 fee for the first night, but if you stay 3 or more nights, you get it back. Parking is gated/secure and spacious. They are also happy to help you organize tours. If you have truck you can also stay in your vehicle for €20,- and use all facilities. They are also open to pets, but you need to discuss this in advance. If you want to make a reservation: info@downtownoasis.sr or call: +597 52 14 81

Pikin Slee - Pasensi

Verified: 8 months ago
GPS: 4.247207, -55.441262
Alt.: 60.0 masl
Resort with a two bedroom house and four simple cottages at a beautiful bend of the Suriname River at the outskirts of Piking Slee. Village walks and jungle tours are organized by Pasensi. Full board EUR 30 per person per night. Nice, helpful manager. Piking Slee can only be reached by boat, 3 to 4 hours from Ayuni, the last place on the road from Paramaribo. We did not like leaving our car unattended there (although many locals do), but found an acceptable private place in Pokigron.

Resort in the middle of Lake Bigi Pan. Full board trips from Nickerie for 24 or 48 hours include transport, boat trips, meals, (non-alcoholic) drinks and accommodation. Not cheap: €85 per person for 24 hours, €150 for 48 hours. It is a superb place for birding. I don't think we saw more birds together anywhere, including lots of red ibises. Possibility to charge electronics, otherwise no electricity. Parking next to the landing out of sight of the main road, but not guarded or fenced. Safe according to locals.

Isadou Holiday Island

Verified: 10 months ago
GPS: 4.423543, -55.369986
Alt.: 70.0 masl
Several people in Paramaribo, who we thought understood we were looking for a cultural and Eco-tourism experience, recommended we visit Isadou. If you get the same recommendation, ignore it. Isadou is a resort on an island. Meaning: 1. You will have hardly any interaction with locals unless you book a tour to one of the nearby towns like Jaw Jaw (which you can arrange with Andre, the owner of Isadou, for SRD50 per person). 2. You will hear the generator and water pump noises all night instead of birds, insects and monkeys. 3. You can't just take a stroll into nature. 4. If there is a religious retreat onsite, like was the case for us, there may be loud singing and sermons until midnight and beyond. 5. If you have not booked ahead, it will be impossible to have meals here. In order to heat water, you will have to have rented a kitchen, unless Andre takes pity on you and does it for you. The best value boats leave at 11am from Atjoni -- we left at 5pm and paid SRD50 per person to get here, 30 minutes up river. Since there was no more hammock space, Andre made us a deal and gave us a cabin with toilet, shower, bed and mosquito net for SRD100 per person. We take full responsibility for putting ourselves in the position to wind up someplace like this, but if, like us, you don't have enough time to go farther up river, ask to stay in Jaw Jaw which is SRD80 per person to hang a hammock or tent and SRD60 for a meal. We parked our bikes at the police station in Atjoni. They didn't want any money and if you ask really nicely, you may be able to put your bikes into their garage which has a gate. Also, don't make plans based on when you will get back to Atjoni: we arranged with the guy who brought us up the river to pick us up and bring us to his village the next day before bringing us back to Atjoni. Even though we tipped him 20%, he no-showed the next day which meant we had to wait another 3 hours for a boat that was picking up a tour group (which was an hour late). NOTE: Especially for anyone traveling farther up the river, make sure your belongings are in a dry bag... In the two days we were here, 3 boats full of people capsized in the Rapids just above Isadou. Life jackets recommended.

Currently there are no houses here, but that may change. Entrance is 4x4 only. Flat gravel area before you get to the sloped washout is perfect for camping and 95% hidden from the road. If this doesn't work for you, between 10-20kms from here in the direction of Atjoni, there is a camping/hammock/parking area with green buildings. They charge SRD75 per person to hang a hammock.
