Hammocks for cheap
Having searched many stores for hammocks and mosquito nets, a local guy pointed me to this store. It is about 5 minutes walk past the central market, on the right side. Once you enter, you will notice that it sells almost exclusively fabrics/textiles and hammocks. But near the back of the store, it also sells miscellaneous tools and equipment useful in the interior of the country.
Open Mon~Fri 7:30 to 4:15
Sat 7:30 to 12:45
What to buy: Hammocks here are of two types, Brazilian and Surinamese. Brazilian hammocks will have decorative tails/lace hanging along the side. Surinamese hammocks have plain straight edges.
What to pay: Regardless of the type, single person hammocks start at 25 SRD (compared to 60 SRD at most other stores).
They have two-person hammocks starting at 40 SRD. Mosquito nets start at 28 SRD.
Address: Saramaccastraat 42
