La Isla, Amazonian park
This park, called La Isla ("The Island") is an environmental interpretation centre which communicates the value of the forest and promotes the preservation of natural resources, a place where native vegetation is observed and different animal species are conserved and managed. This park is located within the Sumaco Biosphere Reserve, recognised by UNESCO.
"Llanganates" National Park
The word "Llaganates" means beautiful hills, a word used by the ancient inhabitants of the mountains, and these hills were considered a sacred place by the native people in the region of Rumiñahui and became the most important ceremonial centre for the Incas. This place is full of archaeological evidence and treasures, which has allowed us to discover the existence of ancestral cultures in South America.
The "Guaysayacu" Blue Lagoon
This town, located an hour from Tena by vehicle, got involved in the community tourism service in 2011 in an organised manner, according to Sergio Chiguango Cerda, member of the "Laguna Azul" Community Tourism Association. Discovered in 1986, this place if full of the stories of the settlers that talk about its magical waters, as well as its natural pools and the formation of rapids in its rock slides.
La Laguna Azul (The Blue Lagoon) is hidden in the thick Talag rainforest, and it was given this name by the locals due to its crystal-clear waters. This place belongs to the Alukus sector, located in the Llanganates National Park reserve, where the main attractions are two natural "pools" and structures made of gigantic rocks. This is a sacred place, since the ancestors made energy rituals here. Now these same rituals are offered both to locals or national or foreign tourists.
