Amazon Natural Park / Yanayaquillo Creek

Apr 30, 2018 - Delfin II


Early morning after a fantastic breakfast on the dining room of the Delfin II we departed by skiff to nearby Amazon Park to explore by foot the tropical rainforest adjacent to the river. During our visit to Amazon Park, we got to walk on suspension bridges to get to see the forest from the canopy. Sort of a bird’s perspective of the forest! Later after returning to our ship for another delicious meal, and some rest, we explored by skiff the Yanayaquillo creek, one off the many tributaries of the Amazon River. The afternoon was spectacular! After some rain the forest came to life, and there was lots of activity. Active troops of monkeys, toucans, and many birds searching for the last meal of the day.

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.
