Incidents and accidents
- On 14 November 1976, a de Havilland Canada DHC6-100 Twin Otter, registered PZ-TAV of the Surinaamse Luchtvaart Maatschappij was involved in a freak incident at the Amatopo Airstrip. The co-pilot, M. van Waveren, was killed when he walked into the running propeller after the landing. The plane was piloted by G. Brunings.
From the airstrip there is a tour starting with an 800-meter walk through the rainforest, and then transported by dugout canoe (about 30 minute boat trip) to beautiful Arapahu Island on the Corantijn River, where tourist lodges are available.
