Lodges in Yasuní

Yasuni National Park is the largest national park in Ecuador. It is situated in the Amazonian provinces of Napo and Pastaza. The park, about 250 kilometers east of Quito, lies within the Napo moist forests eco-region and was declared an International Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1989.

The park is also home to the renowned Huaorani indigenous people, as well as two tribes, the Tagaeri and Taromenane, that to this day still live in isolation from modern society.

Yasuni is probably the most biologically diverse place 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. The park holds more than 1,500 species of amphibians, 500 species of fish, 121 species of reptiles, 2,274 species of trees and more than 100,000 species of insects per hectare, which is roughly the amount of insect species that can be found in all of North America.

A popular place to visit in the park is at the parrot clay-lick on the north bank of the Napo River, close to the Sacha and Napo Wildlife lodges. During the right weather conditions hundreds of brightly feathered parrots descend on a clay cliff to feed.

Yasuní offers some of the best opportunities in Ecuador to experience pristine rainforest, and most tours coming through Coca will include a visit to the park. In addition to rainforest hikes, one of the highlights of a visit to the park is boating along the Napo River. Here you can enjoy the rich vegetation and abundant wildlife of the Amazon, and you have a good chance to see pink river dolphins and giant river otters.

Attractions to highlight:

Laguna Jatuncocha and Garzacocha: are especially attractive for flora and fauna characteristic of these places. This sector of the Yasuni river is an excellent place to observe pink dolphins.

Tiputini River: You can access relatively easily and scenic resources within the park, with spectacular flora and fauna, is one of its biggest attractions. further leads to the town of Nuevo Rocafuerte.

Anango Lagoon: is known for its attractive natural environment. From the Kichwa community of Anango there is a path that leads to the lagoon; It is a footpath that takes about half an hour. There on the banks of the lagoon a premium hostelry with native guides services to make tours through the jungle, canoeing and observation of flora and fauna.

Shiripuno River, Rio Tiguino, and Rio Cononaco: navigating these rivers means enjoy the exotic and extraordinary landscape of the area , as well as the typical flora and fauna. Along the route into the park can be seen charapas white and alligators. Sometimes you can see tapirs crossing rivers and hopefully you can see deer. There are also saladeros , bright colors butterflies and birds.

River Curaray: like other rivers within the park, the Curaray is of great attraction and includes small lakes with high biodiversity . Outside, but very close to the southern boundary of the park it is the town of San José de Curaray to which can be accessed by air. This community is characterized by the production of handicrafts that are sold outside the park.
