The Morichales de Paz de Ariporo is a proposed national park[1] in the Casanare Department of Colombia. It was formerly referred to as the Humedales de Casanare.[2] The area holds the largest extension of wetlands in eastern Colombia. Also of interest are the stands of Moriche palm (Mauritia flexuosa) that exist throughout the wetlands.
