After a 60 minute drive through the district of Commewijne we arrive at the pier from where we will travel by boat (before getting into the boat a warm drink and a sandwich is served). We cruise all the way through the Warappa Creek ending on the beach of the Atlantic sea.
Along the way the guide takes his time to bring the colonial past back to live with his vivid stories of the plantation. Beside these stories you can enjoy the beautiful flora and fauna. All kinds of birds and monkeys can be spotted here. Some common species are Krabbe Buzzards (Buteogallus aequinoctialis) and Scarlet Ibis (Eudocimus ruber) The mix of different types of mangrove and poisonous cacti make up for a special vegetation.
Somewhere halfway we will go ashore to one of the former plantations to look at the remains of a sugar factory.
Back at Bakkie we have lunch, visit the local botanical garden and a very interesting boutique museum with original historical documents.
Next stop is a citrus and banana plantation called Alliance (one of the few plantations still active). We also have an encounter with local people to have a bite to eat and hear their story.
Finally we start our journey back to Paramaribo.

Most tour operators (like Orange Travel) list their rates in Euro.
The most advantageous way to pay is cash or by bank* in Euro.
Followed by cash in SRD or U$D, then POS in SRD * and finally a credit card payment **.
* If there are any additional bank charges, these should be paid by the customer. If it turns out that not the full agreed amount is credited to our account, the difference should still be paid before participating or checking in.
** When using POS (our machine only excepts SRD) we will use the daily exchange rate of the cambio’s. As these sometimes differ significantly from the rate your- and our bank uses, you can come out worse between 10% and 30% (in this Orange Travel has no benefit, yet influence).
*** All credit card payments are processed in U$D and a bank fee is added. The fee for Visa and MasterCard is 5% (in this Orange Travel has no benefit, yet influence). This payment method requires you to show your passport.
