The name “Omaere” means “nature of the rainforest” in the Waorani Language. The Park was founded in 1993 by a Shuar woman and two French women. They formed the Omaere Foundation and bought a 15-hectare parcel of land on the outskirts of the city of Puyo and started to plant the most important plants to Amazonian peoples. Now the plants have had time to grow and it looks like a natural forest. We have two traditional houses, where we teach about the Shuar and the Waorani cultures. You can also enjoy the tranquility of nature, just a few minutes from the center of Puyo.
