Clavero Lake & Puerto Miguel

Aug 26, 2017 - Delfin II


Our last full day of our expedition in the remote Peruvian Upper Amazon was filled with several activities and choices.  After breakfast, we explored Clavero Lake by skiffs or kayaks. We had many rewards for from the very beginning we spotted many bird species and enjoyed the magical peacefulness of the surroundings.  In the late morning went to swim in this remote location as well.

One of the highlights was the observation of a couple of beautiful bird species. The Amazon green kingfisher and the hoatzin. They were relatively close to our skiffs allowing us to take great pictures of them.

Soon after all of us were onboard we started to navigate towards our next destination for the afternoon activities, Puerto Miguel.  In this location is still possible to see the giant water lilies that are almost absent in this time of the year. We visited he largest handcrafts market of the region as well.

Once onboard we enjoyed the guests’ pictures slide show of the week, a great dinner and the cheerfulness expressed in the lively music the Delfin II crew members played for us. The latter was a golden finale to a lifetime experience in the immense Amazonia.
