Pacaya River

Oct 20, 2017 - Delfin II


Today was a special day. We reached the furthest distance that Delfin II will travel before turning around and beginning our journey back. In order to explore beyond, and get to the most pristine areas to make the most of our trip, we needed to travel by skiff longer and faster. So, at dawn after breakfast we left Delfin II behind and traveled down the Pacaya River with an extra smaller skiff following us with crew and lunch.

The sights were amazing! The scenery spectacular! And thanks to our crew, the lunch far deep in the Amazon jungle was of just as high quality as the rest of our meals here.  Very memorable!!

About the Author

José Calvo

Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor

Nicknamed “Indio” (Indian) because of his powers of observation and quiet nature, José has almost two decades of experience working as a naturalist and photography guide; as well as being recognized as an expert birder and nature photographer in Costa Rica. Costa Rica is rich in biodiversity — over 893 bird species have been recorded in the country. Since very young José spent all of his free time in the outdoors in the forest, where he soon fell in love with the birds. He particularly enjoys listening to their calls, and watching their behavior. Oddly enough, another one of Jose’s passions is science and technology, and because of this, he was among the first in Costa Rica to experiment with digital photography. As the technology quickly improved so did his love for it.  He truly believes that nature photography is the perfect combination of both of his passions.
