The Visitors’ Centre is currently closed. The communities of San Martín de Amacayacu and Mocagua, offer basic accommodation in hamacas, food, transport, guidance and enviormental interpretation. For further information about this communities go to the link Communities. In 2012 a flood affected the facilities for visitors in the Park, which lead to the suspension of the ecotouristic activities the 30 of March of the same year. This situation coincided with the anticipated termination of the concession contract, with the evidence of issues in the river course, and with the impact report of the accommodations in the Park. Taking into account that ecotouristic activities in the Parque Amacayacu are develop in bordering areas under the conditions of indigenous reservations, both indigenous and environmental authorities (Parques Nacionales Naturales) are in charge of controlling and regulating of these activities of alternative development such as ecotourism. These authorities have agreed that inside the park there should be a consistent ecoutouristic proposal that guarantees a proper development of this high impact activity.

Due to this situation, currently the Parque Nacional Natural Amacayacu in cooperation with the indigenous communities involved, is developing a proposal of ecotouristic development in the area that involves the relocation of the actual infrastructure, in other words; redesigning of the Visitors’ Centre to create a space of education, environmental implementation and Amazonian training. This proposal seeks to give a creative and strategic solution to the situation of the Parque Amacayacu. It is proposed to consolidate the great potential and position of the Parque Amacayacu internationally, strengthen and empower the inner force of the ecotourism process of organization and work that the communities of San Martín de Amacayacu, Palmeras y Mocagua, have being carrying out for about 25 years. However, the Visitors’ Centre does not have a specific date of reopening.
