Commewijne River Tour


Commewijne River Cruise
The area
The district Commewijne is situated in the east of Paramaribo across the Suriname River. During the trips we visit different villages which have had glorious times with their sugar, cacao, coffee and cotton plantations. To protect the plantations and the hinterland and to assist fort Zeelandia, some military posts and forts were build. In 1734 the first stone was laid for the building of the open air fort New Amsterdam. The fort was built on an earthen fund with a structure of five points and it has the same amount bastions. Since 1968 the fort is being used as an open-air museum and the buildings as an administrative center. The channels and picturesque sluices, the remains of the old plantation houses of which some are still in use, are
silent witnesses from the once so dynamic district Commewijne. River cruises with the Bosrokoman tour boat.Meal
