Best attraction for Birdwatching, Kayak, Fishing and Eco-Tours. Bigi Pan is a protected MUMA (Multi Use Management Area) on the North Coast of Nickerie and Coronie District, Suriname, South-America. This place is one of the breeding places of the Scarlet Ibis and other birds which you can see in their own habitat.

The trip offers excellent chances to see the most scarce birds. Makevsuro you start early in morning. Which ensures you see the birds most likely.

Stayed in Stefanie' lodge with very unexperienced guide, 15 yr old school drop-out, without any birding experience. Stefanie also 'forgot' to tell that things like cayman watching, mud bath etc are season depending only... not worth the money! Trip through the canal is nice though.

Ik heb Stephanie rechtstreeks gebeld toen ik Su was. We hebben 80 srd p.p. betaald voor een halve dag zonder lunch. Met de huidige koers is het een schijntje. Het verschilt dus afhankelijk van je wensen
