Moengo is a town in Suriname, located in the Marowijne district, between Paramaribo and the border town Albina. Moengo is also a resort (municipality) in the district of Marowijne. Alcoa's first bauxite mine in Suriname was located in Moengo. In former times it was a major centre for the mining and storage of bauxite. The Moengo Airstrip is one of the oldest airport in Suriname, in use since August 1953, when the Piper Cub (PZ-NAC) of Kappel-van Eyck named "Colibri" landed there from Zorg en Hoop Airport.
