Yasuni Park is the largest protected area in mainland Ecuador, it is consider the best place to visit the amazon in Ecuador, it protects an impressive biodiversity in the heart of the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador which includes part of the Waorani national territory. In the Yasuni, a lot of surprising biodiversity figures were reported and never registered before in any other protected area.

Here you will find hundreds of tree species, wide rivers that overflow with torrential rains and large animals such as the jaguar, anaconda and harpy eagle.

We also find very small beings, such as the little lion or pocket monkey, the smallest primate in the world, and a large variety of reptiles and amphibians that place in this park among the most bio diverse site of the world.

The human side of the Yasuni is also full of surprises. Inside the park live Tagaeri and Taromenanes, Indigenous People in Voluntary Isolation. To protect them and the biodiversity of the Yasuni, The Ecuadorian government declared in 1999 a Intangible Zone Tagaeri-Taromenane. The Yasuni National Park, the Intangible Zone and the adjacent Waorani territory were declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1989.
