TRAVELLING TO SURINAM

A pirogue trip of approximately 10 minutes will take you to Albina, the number one town in Surinam.
Surinam is well worth a visit if you are staying in western French Guiana.
Paramaribo, the capital, is a successful blend of colonial remains and modernity.

How do you get there?

Trips to Albina leave from the Bac International (international ferry port) of Saint Laurent du Maroni, and you can also take a pirogue from the same port.

Once you are in Albina, to get to Paramaribo you have to take a shared or private taxi, unless you have your own car. It is a 175 km trip between Albina and Paramaribo.

As well as your passport, a visa or tourist card will be required at the border checkpoint of Saint Laurent du Maroni, and at Albina for the return trip!

+ Ferry Schedule and Prices

+ Pirogue Prices

One-way trip: €5/passenger

Alternatively, you can apply for one at the Consulate of Surinam in Cayenne.
