Wakapasi is the newest hotspot in Suriname. Conveniently located between Paramaribo’s entertainment center and the Waterkant, it is a great place to relax and explore the different units. Among other things you will be able to find information about Suriname’s highly diverse population, various delicious snacks and treats, as well as many cultural attributes.
There is also information on how to further explore our country. Visit the ‘cabana’ of the Gidsen Suriname (Suriname guides), a collaboration between the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Tourism. Tired of walking? Take a seat on one the beautiful wooden benches to relax while you enjoy the sunset, a cup of coffee, a glass of wine or a cocktail. This walking route is also a great family outing.
