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.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Indonesia or Egypt, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

Socializing with other expatriates is a great way to settle into a new country and help make that big move run smoothly.

    Getting around in Paramaribo is challenging if you don't know the city. InterNations quickly helped me discover the best locations.
