Supay Caño & Puerto Miguel Ucayali River

Dec 09, 2017 - Delfin II

Our last day of outings started with a delightful sunrise that gave way to a cool and fresh, therefore magnificent, morning.  We quickly boarded our skiffs for a ride in which wildlife was truly abundant from the very beginning. We recorded some 70 species of birds in only a couple of hours plus a few mammals! When the sun started to heat up and activity went low it was also time for us to turn in and have or well-deserved breakfast. After our now fundamental and mandatory siesta, we set to visit the markets of Puerto Miguel and explore a bit of the wildlife and plants around this community that a few years ago after the river had carved the very ground over which it was built, simply dismantled and picked up the houses and moved to the other side of the river. Talk about tenacity!
