Description

Free entry to the park. After 17km through nice forest you reach a open area where you find a shelter, picknick tables, shades, toilet and old structures of buildings. Nice view of the forest canopy and the river in the distance. On the left starts an interesting intepretive trail (1.6km) through the forest where you can see some impressive trees (50 meters or more) and some examples how rubber is collectet from the kautschuk trees. Unfortunately there is no camping allowed in the park. Visit recommended!

@andarengos...passamos uma noite aqui. É muito lindo, fizemos a trilha curta para ver a árvore gigante e o circuito curtir pq havia chovido muito. A noite o céu e os ruídos dos animais são incríveis.
Não queriam a principio nos deixar entrar porque não tínhamos o registro solicitado, porém enviamos e-mail e não tivemos resposta.
Depois apareceu uma terceira pessoa que nos disse que chamaria o guia ( o qual pagamos para que ele passasse também a noite . 200 reias)
O sr Agnaldo foi excelente como nosso guia, nos ajudou a desencalhar o motor home, nos acompanhou explicando tudo sobre a floresta.
Atenção ao solo ao chegar se estiver com tempo chuvoso, mesmo sendo 4x4 como nós , atolamos umas 5 vezes e precisamos chamar um trator para nos retirar.

Long story short: you don’t need a permit to enter the park with your own vehicle if you go to the main entrance (which is the entrance in Sao Domingo). We went to the ICMBio office in Santarem and they told us you only need a written permit if you’re more than 10 people. So just drive to the Sao Domingo entrance, register there for free, and enter.

You can drive to the communities Maguari and Jamaraqua, but to hike into the actual forest, you have to take a guide. They’re readily available in Jamaraqua (where you can also join a group and share the price). There, they typically do a 9km loop to look at the big trees and swim in a beautiful Igarape (jungle river). The loop takes 4 hours because the guides walk súper slow. Unfortunately you don’t see any animals. A guide costs 200R in total (so to be divided by the participants). If you’re more than 5, price remains 40R per person.

If you visit the Tapajos NP with your own vehicle you have to get a permit to enter the park. Go to ICMBio office in Santarèm (-2.419585, -54.731625). Bring your passport. Free entry. Then you drive to São Domingos and enter. We slept 3 days in the park and recommend Frank as guide. He speaks Portuguese, Englisch very well (former Englisch teacher) and French. You can do tours in the jungle to giant Samauma trees, by boat in the flooded forest or sleep in the jungle. We did the floodes forest tour for 200R$ and enjoyed a lot (paddled through great nature, swimmed in the river and went Piranha fishing)! Contact Frank for an appointment:
