I saw that this was added in an anonymous edit today. It looks like it lists embassies. Does wikitravel habitually list them? I was under the impression that we don't, but I'm going to leave it as-is (except for maybe formatting it right) until I see some input or consensus. Jordanmills 17:55, 14 April 2007 (EDT)

Per Wikitravel:Where you can stick it, embassies go in the Cope section of the cities they are in. - Todd VerBeek 18:37, 14 April 2007 (EDT)


How shall we divide the regions of Suriname? I think it's quite hard as the inland areas are barely visited. I think a split of the west side of the coast and the east side of the coast could be a good idea. globe-trotter 18:01, 1 January 2010 (EST)

I think the two best ways of dividing the country up in one's travel mind are inland v. coast and Paramaribo area v. everything else (more than half of the country's population is in the capital!). It would be hard for us to capture both of those divisions without creating tiny, empty articles, though, so I'd suggest we do Inland Suriname (1,6,9), Northeast Suriname (2,4,7,10), and Northwest Suriname (3,5,8). (Numbers correspond to districts here.) Virtually all the population will be covered in the northeast article—the Nickerie District in the northwest does have the country's second largest city, Nieuw Nickerie... of 13,000 people.
We don't really need to create these regions yet, but if we do, we can feel confident that we will not need to create further subdivisions, I think, for this small country. --Peter Talk 10:39, 4 January 2010 (EST)
You're right, I was thinking exactly the same. For now we only have articles for three towns, and two of them outlines... globe-trotter 10:51, 4 January 2010 (EST)
I finished the Suriname map, please let me know what you think=) --globe-trotter 10:35, 15 January 2010 (EST)
Looks good! --Peter Talk 11:16, 15 January 2010 (EST)
Good job GT. You are rattling maps out very quickly at the moment. Great to see. --Burmesedays 11:46, 15 January 2010 (EST)
This is probably the only map of Wikitravel that listed every village of over 1000 inhabitants in the whole country! (with the exception of Mariënburg, which is basically a suburb of Paramaribo). --globe-trotter 11:56, 15 January 2010 (EST)


I believe there is no longer a direct flight to Suriname from Cayanne? There is AFAIK no official transportation directly from Cayene (or anywhere in French-Guyana) to Suriname. 12:21, 12 September 2011 (EDT)

Indeed, I can't find any direct flights to French Guyana, or to Aruba, for that matter. I deleted those, thanks for the information! Next time, feel free to push the edit button above the article and change the information yourself. 12:50, 12 September 2011 (EDT)
