Parque Nacional Yasuni, Coca
(4.6/5 based on 10+ reviews on the web)
Yasuni National Park is in Ecuador with an area of 9,820 km2 between the Napo and Curaray rivers in Napo and Pastaza provinces in Amazonian Ecuador. The national park lies within the Napo moist forests ecoregion and is primarily rain forest. The park is about 250 km from Quito and was designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1989. It is within the claimed ancestral territory of the Huaorani indigenous people. Yasuni is home to two uncontacted indigenous tribes, the Tagaeri and the Taromenane.BiodiversityYasuni National Park is arguably the most biologically diverse spot on Earth. The park is at the center of a small zone where amphibian, bird, mammal, and vascular plant diversity all reach their maximum levels within the Western Hemisphere. Moreover, the park breaks world records for local-scale (less than 100 km2) tree, amphibian, and bat species richness, and is one of the richest spots in the world for birds and mammals at local scales as well.

  • Simply beautiful, from Coca (Francisco de Orellana) take a boat from 10 hs to new Rocafuerte. Once contacted there that was going to be our guide: Juan Carlos Cuenca who recommend their knowledge and good vibes. We could only camping overnight in the Park since we didn't have much time travel but what looks, sounds and feels is incomparable. Life everywhere, recommend it to all those who are encouraged to venture out into the jungle!

  • I recommend first to reach Nueva Rocafuerte (last town before entering the rainforest) of your account; You can also bargain tours from Coca but the way that I recommend is much cheaper, adventurous but also perhaps a little more uncomfortable! Join the town with 8/10 hours by boat from there try Cezar, an indigenous native guide who opened a family hostel with his daughter and his wife. Enter the park with a native guide is the best thing you can do! With 50 € I negotiated two days and one night in the jungle including 3 meals a day and camping gear. It was an incredible experience, we caught piranhas on the River, we sailed at night on the rio napo seeing alligators sleeping, we saw 2 sloths and pink dolphins. We came across wild boar of the forest, seeing little trails of bullet ants, tall termite mounds and a wonderful vegetation, green and lush! Sleeping in the jungle, waking up early and have breakfast, watch the sun set over the lagoon were experiences that I will never forget!

  • The rainforest of the Yasuni is a unique experience of life diversity in shapes, colors, sounds and adaptations. The natural selection best result can be seen at +Shiripuno Lodge really deep in the Yasuni.
  • Great place
  • This does not look like the correct boundary of the park? How is this boundary derived? More transparency needed Google! Practice what you preach - freedom of information!
  • I have not been to that park it looks good I don't no because I live in fleetwood
  • Beautiful place, it doesn't need to be destroy by black oil. Correa do not destroy this place 1%?? bullshit.
