Christiaankondre and Langamankondre, in the area known as Galibi, are two traditional Amerindian villages located next to each other along the Marowijne river at the mouth of the Atlantic Ocean. Both villages have a sandy beach, which is ideal for long strolls. These villages were formed after the period of slavery and they extended to rather large Amerindian villages with a population of approximately 750 inhabitants. The most important means of life for the local people is fishery. In the sea-turtle season, from February to August, you will also visit the breeding places where the gigantic sea turtles come each year to lay their eggs.
