"Georgetown to Paramaribo" Suriname Transportation Tip by hauteboy
Suriname Transportation: 16 reviews and 11 photos
We went overland from Georgetown to Paramaribo, which made for a very long day. We left Georgetown at 5AM in a taxi (about $120, split 3 ways). There are also minibuses that ply this route. The main road here was in good condition. The ferry from Guyana to Suriname only runs once per day at 11AM so you must make this. There is also a ferry crossing at the Berbice river that only runs once an hour, we literally missed the 6:30 ferry by two minutes. We arrived at the Guyana ferry terminal around 9:30. The ferry ($10) was supposed to leave at 11AM but it was almost 2PM by the time it left the Guyana side. Once on the other side there are minibuses waiting to leave for Paramaribo. I think this was about $13. This took another 5 hrs, as the roads were in bad shape and there was a lot of flooding.
