Yes. All participants who are not living in Suriname, need to travel there before the trip starts. We recommend you arrive at least one full day prior to the start of the trip in Suriname. We will pick you up from the airport and drive you to your hotel/motel. Our trips usually start at 8 AM in the morning, when we board the bus in Paramaribo to travel to Albina, the starting point of all our Amazon jungle adventures.
