I wasn’t able to hide my excitement when we finally reached Suriname. For those who are not aware, this is a sovereign state on the northeastern Atlantic coast of South America. It used to be a Dutch territory, hence, the language and the architecture. It is also known as the smallest country on the continent. But don’t let that fool you because Suriname has a lot to offer. I have to tell you, Jon and I were doing so much that we ended up quite worn out, so we were really happy to have Jacana Amazon Wellness Resort and Spa to come back to and recover each day!

The Food 

We ate our dinner at the in-house restaurant, which served a modern menu of delicious international cuisine, making the most of the wide variety of local ingredients combined with foreign flavours to give classic dishes a unique spin. The poolside setting, with the fresh warm air and the sounds of the waterfall complete the experience!
