Supay Caño & Puerto Miguel/Yarapa Caño

Feb 17, 2018 - Delfin II

Our last full day of exploration of the Pacaya-Samiria Reserve in the Upper Amazon in Peru was filled with all the required ingredients that have made this expedition a successful one with great animal sightings, intercultural experiences with the local inhabitants of the area, wonderful company and excellent meals with regional flavors.  In the morning while exploring Supay Caño we had several great sightings.  Wildlife is usually very active in this location, we were very lucky for we saw many bird species like flycatchers, nighthawks, herons, kites, tanagers, parrots, etc.

Later in the afternoon, after a short visit to the largest handcraft market of the area, we had a final skiff ride in Yarapa Caño. In this location, we had a golden finale to our expedition for we had extraordinary sightings that included some monkeys, woodpeckers, tanagers and birds of prey.  At sunset, reluctantly, we came back onboard with our minds and spirits fill with all the new adventures and feelings that the Upper Amazon has brought to our lives.
