We drive on a paved road to New Nickerie. The first stop is in Groningen at the square with the many monuments in the district of Saramacca, whose name already betrays the Dutch interference, about 150 years ago. After passing the Coppena River, we enter the district of Coronie. Whether the welcome text "Peaceful, Free and Friendly" is correct is up to you. Further on, where the palm trees make way for rice fields, you arrive in Nickerie, the center of Surinamese rice cultivation. Ending point: New Nickerie. A look at the Zeedijk will not be missed.
You will experience the highlight of this trip today during a cruise on a corjaal through the largest lagoon in the country, Bigi Pan nature reserve. A typical 'wetland' with creeks, mangrove forests, swamps and mud banks. A 'breeding' Eldorado for more than 120 bird species, including the red ibis, osprey and tern. What more could a birdwatcher want. On the way back to Paramaribo, there may be time to stop at one of the many roadside stalls for fruit and other goodies.
