Bordering the forests of Guyana, French Guiana and Brazil, the southern and central section of Suriname is similarly forest-covered. The few tourist lodges are in isolated and remote spots. The southern mountains span a remote area that stretches across the whole of Suriname's southern border with Brazil, the contested south-western border with Guyana and south-eastern edge of French Guiana. Various small tribes including the Trio and Waro have united to form the larger community at Kwamalasamutu, close to the Kuruni river.
