National Park Nature / Park
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.

  • You need a guide who will help you find the many birds you will see as you ride along in a small boat. We saw beautiful Macaws, Toucans, monkeys, tiny frogs, river dolphin, and the Stinky Turkey bird....  more »
  • Interesting to see, but must see from the boat so can't get real close and once you have seen the hundreds of parrots unless that is your thing don't need to spend alot of time here.  more »

  • Pure nature!
  • 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!
  • 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.
