Bergendal is a paradise resort some 80 km South from Paramaribo. Located at the bank of Suriname river and far from the noises of traffic, it is the most luxurious place we have stayed in Suriname. Guests visiting the resort are accommodated in wooden lodges. Some of them are overlooking the water and others, erected on long pillars are located in the jungle, high between three crowns. The interiors are simply beautiful and create the idyllic atmosphere. How amazing it was to get up at dusk and have a cup of fresh coffee (there is a coffee machine in every lodge) observing the sun rise above the jungle. Staying in Bergendal you can’t miss seeing wild animals like monkeys, agoutis, squirrels, eagles and even a caiman living right next to hotel’s bar at the river! For all the fans of sport activities there is a special center where you can zip line across the river and through the jungle, go for a kayak adventure or take a guided walking tour through the forest. For those who like a bit of luxury during their holidays, Bergendal offers a relaxing time by the swimming pool with most incredible view. When the sun comes down you can enjoy daily evening activities organized by the management like a movie night or occasional lectures. During our stay, ladies from one of the Maroon tribes presented their traditional outfits and talked about their customs and culture. The food, at the breakfast as well as all evening meals, was very delicious. Visitors are offered two options, a la carte menu and the buffet with several different dishes and desserts. We couldn’t wish for a better stay, it was fun, relaxing and beautiful. We left regenerated and well rested with great memories and stories to tell.

We are Marta and Ben, a Polish-German couple currently traveling the world. We’ve met last year, both with specified and fixed plans, following two different paths. And even though it seemed impossible, we decided to be together against all (so many!) odds. Since then we travel together, share big and small dreams, live great moments and face troubles. We laugh loud and argue loud, we cry, smile, party and have fun together each day. We live in constant need to visit new places. We share the urge to discover, learn and understand new cultures, traditions and customs. We crave to see all world’s wonders. We want to meet beautiful people and get to know their stories. We would like to listen to local music, taste delicious food, swim in different seas and sleep under different skies. We wish to speak various languages but sometimes just stay speechless. We want an adventure. Our dream and plan is to travel from Argentina to Alaska on a tandem bicycle and visit all the countries of South, Latin and North America. This means that we are going to cover the distance of 30 000 km in three years time.
