Amazon park

Oct 24, 2017 - Delfin II


Today we visited a privately owned wildlife reserve adjacent to the main river. Led by our expert local naturalist guides, we explored more of the tropical rainforest from ground level, beneath the thick diverse canopy. Along the trail, we also walked a section with suspension bridges, where we could see the forest floor from above.

In the afternoon we explored some of the tributaries of the Amazon. We had some beautiful sightings of birds not often seen, such as the violaceous jay, and the capped heron.

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.
