Nothing better than sitting on the patio at T'vat drinking Djugo's (litre bottles) of Parbo, eating kip sate and bitterballen. The soato soup is great. Two doors down from T'vat, Bastille has a good menu as well and it's not too expensive.
For pool go to Willie's above Wolly's Grill. Aventura for live music, Fubar is a great drinking place and Jungle for dancing...
Suriname · Visa fun|

Really important..!! Make sure you have a visa to enter the country (if you need one) before you arrive. If not you'll be hanging out at the airport for a couple of hours (my flight landed at 1am) until they tell you that they will have to keep your passport and you can pick it up the next day at immigration in downtown Parbo. They'll give you a reciept for your passport. Although they say it wil be ready the next day, it took 3 days to get mine back. I think the immigration office hours were 7am-10am and 12:30-14:30. Then you'll have to go over to the military police station to get entry stamps. The visa was $45USD and they only accept USD and Euro's.

If you have the time take a drive up the windward coast. All the way to the top of the island. Beware, the roads are.. interesting..!! Near Fancy, down 200 steps you'll find the Owai salt ponds... a tidal flat area with waves crashing on tall rocks about 40 metres out. You can easily walk to the rocks without getting wet. Do wear your shoes as the rocks are fairly rough. From this vantage point you can look north and see Gros Piton on St. Lucia.
