We stayed here for a couple of days and had a wonderful time. The METS organisation and especially guide Julius van Trom were fantastic in every respect. The excursions were beautiful and we saw many interesting and beautiful things and animals. The food was excellent and the cabins were very comfortable. We mostly slept in hammocks on the lookout jetty though. The lounge building is very comfortable and serves snacks and drinks all day. The morning tea / coffee at your cabin is a great feature too. I miss the place already.

We enjoyed our holiday at Palumeu very much. Great tour guide Elton told us a lot of interesting things about the culture and nature. Elton has good humor too. Good food, nice people and many nice trips, to poti hill, nice rapids, bird spotting and beautiful sight seeing with the boat made this one I can recommend to everyone.

Surinam, what on earth... Not a real popular holiday destination but if you like basics, love nature especially rain forest then this is the place to be. Spend few days at the Palumeu Lodges. We did great trips, saw rain forest and wonderful service. Guide Julius was great, Indian people helpful and friendly. Makes want to come back again to do the Kasikasima trip.

Basic resort. Cabins allow a lot of noise from the neighbouring cabins. Beautiful views from the cabins and other spaces on the river. Nice excursions. Nice food. Very nice guide Julius. Relaxing experience. And exciting flights to and from.

Palumeu nature and tours are beautiful. Amerindian guide was very knowledgable. But ensure that there a multiple English speaking guests as the guides do only translate if they want. And so it can be very disapppointing when you do something in the group and the guide tells you he will translate when he thinks it is important. So it could be full tours where only guests translate. The nature is one of the best in Suriname, nice walks and boat trips. The lodge has a nice location at the river. The staff is friendly and try their best Food is average. Although in the middle of the jungle there are nearly no fresh fruits or vegetables, all over-cooked and in soup of mayonnaise. If you are a vegetarian, you should not go there. Amerindians are quiet and nice so overall relaxing place.
