Tour Details

Recreation Park Cola Creek, 50 km south of Paramaribo, lies in the midst of the savannah area.

Origin and general information
Cola Creek is the oldest recreation resort in Suriname and is under management of METS since 1995. This shady nature swim resort is very popular among the Surinamese. During holiday periods and weekends the resort is bustling with visitors but outside these periods you can truly enjoy the peaceful, beautiful nature and refreshing water. Cola Creek’s name, indeed from Coca Cola, is derived from the reddish-brown color of the water in the creek.

Day program
The tour departs from Paramaribo via the highway leading to the international “Johan Adolf Pengel” airport, at a distance of 50 km from Paramaribo.

Here, you also have the opportunity to buy arts & crafts. The tour continues to recreation resort Colakreek where you have the opportunity to swim and relax in the refreshing water. The leaves falling in the water give the creek its dark color which looks like that of the Coca Cola drink, hence the name Colakreek. In the afternoon, return trip to Paramaribo.
