Since not many tourists visit Suriname yet and the inner-land is not within easy reach, the expenses of travel are higher than you might expect. Tourist attractions can be more expensive than in Europe or the United States. It is expected that this will change in the near future since there is an annual increase visible in foreign tourists, creating the necessity of working on better roads as well as other ways of cheaper transportation. The best way to go around in Suriname is by boat or car. There are not that many roads going into the country. At every riverbank you can charter boats at reasonable prices. You can't go alone. It is wise to always travel with a tour guide.
It is also an option to rent a car, although some rental companies don't allow you to go into the forest with their cars. Always rent a four-wheel drive. Suriname traffic drives at the left side of the road.
