Embark on Your Life as an Expat in Suriname

The small country of Suriname is located in the northeastern region of South America. The riverside capital of Paramaribo is fun and vivacious, home to unique colonial architecture and a famous wooden cathedral. The most important industry in Suriname is mining, and exporting the country's natural resources, such as oil, gold, and alumina, makes up a large proportion of the country's economy. Despite being located in South America, Suriname is a former Dutch colony and its inhabitants speak mostly Dutch.
