Overview

At Tio Boto, hidden in the Surinamese jungle, there is a cozy eco-resort. It is accessible by a 3.5-hour boat trip from Atjoni, along the Upper Suriname River, and has seven simple houses with single and double beds, equipped with mosquito nets. For those who want to be closer to nature, sleeping in a hammock is also an option. At Tio Boto you can immerse yourself in authenticity and enjoy its pure and untouched essence. The experience at Tio Boto includes basking in the sun, listening to the sounds of birds and swimming in the river with its clear, cool water. Adventurers can fish there and prepare their own food over a campfire!
