Yanallpa and Dorado River

Oct 19, 2017 - Delfin II


This morning and afternoon we explored by skiff and by foot some of the tributaries of the Amazon River as well as the forested edges.

Early morning, before the higher temperatures built up under the tropical sun, we left Delfin II to explore on our skiffs, and we left the ship already wearing rubber boots, to extend our exploration by foot on a trail in the forest adjacent to the water.

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.
