Suriname consists mostly of jungle and is situated on the northeast coast of South America. The county has a tropical rainforest climate; temperatures range from 24 to 36 degrees Celsius. Getting the right vaccinations is important, particularly if you plan a trip into the jungle. In any case, it is wise to prepare your journey well. With its exotic mix of rainforest and abundant flora and fauna, Suriname is the beating heart of the Amazon. Always protect yourself well against the bright sun and against malaria or dengue mosquitoes – whether you go swimming in one of the lakes outside the city or visit the bustling capital Paramaribo. Our nurses will gladly inform you about the required immunisations and vaccines and happily provide advice on additional measures you can take.
