Housing and equipment for field personnel is minimal. There is no electricity and guards have frequent problems with the lack of potable water. According to Barrios (2002), facilities to lodge tourists and researchers are currently being constructed. Permanent communities do not exist in the biotope or near its boundaries. Naachtún Dos Lagunas and El Mirador National Park are the only Guatemalan protected areas with this degree of isolation.
Roads connecting the biotope to other areas of the MBR are crude and barely passable with a four-wheel drive vehicle. As a result, communication is sporadic, especially in the rainy season. To arrive at the biotope from the town of Flores, the capital of Petén, one takes the road to Santa Elena, continuing around lake Petén Itza to the town of San Andres. From there, one heads directly north on the dirt highway towards Carmelita until reaching the village of Cruce de Dos Aguadas. From there, one takes a rough, dirt road to the village of Uaxactún, which crosses the Zotz Biotope and Uaxactún's communal forest concession. From Uaxactún, Naachtún Dos Lagunas is 50 kilometers to the north. In the dry season, four-wheel drive vehicles can enter with some difficulty. Generally, biotope workers arrive on motorcycles or by foot. An alternative route is on foot from the village of Carmelita.
Very few tourists visit the biotope, which is due to both its inaccessibility and because CECON has not promoted the biotope as a tourist destination. Administrators estimate the number of tourists range from 30 and 40 annually, the majority of which are foreigners. A local tourism operator is available as well as local guides.
