Suriname, (formally known as Dutch Guiana), is located in the northeastern region of South America. Suriname is the "middle
Guiana" with Guyana to the west and French Guiana to the east.
To the immediate north is the Caribbean Ocean, however there are no beautiful sandy beaches with deep indigo waters--there
are muddy mangrove banks and muddy ocean waters. This is due to the Amazon River dumping its sediment into the ocean just

Suriname has a humid tropical climate, lush vegetation, exotic animals, and 2 seasons--Rainy season and Dry season.
Suriname's average annual rainfall is 100 inches/year. Average temps are in the mid-to-upper 80's with high humidity.
