Bigi Pan is Sranan Tongo for ‘big lake’ or ‘big puddle’. It is the first Special Management Area or Multiple Use Management Area (MUMA) in Suriname. The area starts at the Burnside plantation in Coronie and ends at the mouth of the Corentijn River. Of the 136,000 ha of this wetland, approximately 67,000 ha is on land and an equally large part is in the marine zone.

The Bigi Pan is a system of salt and brackish water swamps that serve as a breeding ground for numerous animals that live in the water. Access to Bigi Pan is via the 8 km long Jamaer canal that was constructed to regulate the water management in the Bigi Pan. After 45 minutes of sailing you will see a great panorama.
