As soon as you get off the plane, you will feel the humid heat all around you, and it will stay with you for the duration of your visit. Suriname is located just above the equator; therefore, it has a tropical climate with high humidity. The temperature during the day averages 27 degrees Celsius. At night it is not much cooler. Being near the equator means that it gets dark quickly. It rains all year round. It is often a short, but very heavy rainfall.There is a short and a long rainy season.
In summary, Suriname has four seasons:
The short rainy season: the first half of December until the second half of January.
The short dry season: the second half of January until the second half of March.
The long rainy season: the second half of March until the first half of August.
The long dry season: the second half of August until the first half of December.
You will notice that the term “weather forecast” is not an immediate necessity, and that very little attention is paid to the weather on the news.
