On five Sundays in March, the Amazon Biopark, located on JK Road, in the South Zone of Macapá, offers free admission for female visitors. The initiative is already valid from the 8th, which is International Women’s Day.

The space administration highlights that this is a tribute to this audience. To access the benefit, it is necessary to go to the ticket office and redeem the free bracelet. It is only valid for the Sunday when it is withdrawn.

The Biopark is open almost every day from 9 am to 5 pm; the space does not open to the outside public on Monday.
