What are the requirements to get Suriname tourist visa?

Many visitors visit Suriname for the biodiversity of the country's southern Amazon rain forests, which are renowned for their flora and fauna. The Central Suriname Nature Reserve, along with the Brownsburg Nature Park that overlooks the Brokopondo Reservoir, one of the world's largest man-made reservoirs, is the oldest and one of the most famous reservations. During its dry seasons, the best time to visit Suriname is from February to March and August to November. Keep in mind, however, that November is the hottest time in Suriname, and things can get pretty uncomfortable. The humid season won't let you enjoy nature too much.
