Surinam Mauritius Travel Guide Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see

Surinam is located in the South of Mauritius. It is next to the village of Souillac on the other side of the Savanne estuary. It may have derived its name either from the country of Surinam in South America or some say it is a hindu version of reverence to the sun, thus,Suria nam or reverence to Lord Ram in the Hindu Epic of the Ramayans, thus, Seeri ram now misspelt as Surinam by European settlers.

Whatever version is true, Surinam, with its white sandy beaches at Riambel and the mountains as a backdrop, is undoubtedly a beautiful place to live in and visit. Its people are friendly and will go out of their way to ensure that visitors to Mauritius are made to feel welcome.
