El Dorado & Yanalpa

Nov 02, 2017 - Delfin II


Today early morning we explored the Dorado and Yanalpa tributaries. On our skiffs we left behind our home base the Delfin II and ventured deep into the rainforest through the waterways under the lead of our expert nature guides and skiff drivers, continuously stopping along the way to see many of the birds and monkeys of the tropics, and also when possible, stopped some of the friendly local fishermen to see what they had caught in their lines and nets.

During the night we explored again using our skiffs to get to see the inhabitants of the night, and in particular the caimans.

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.
