Aug 24, 2018 - Delfin II
Today we immersed ourselves into the heart of the Pacaya - Samiria Reserve, where we enjoyed superb landscapes and wildlife encounters. Our journey started with a skiff ride exploring the Pacaya river and surrounding forests. Along this journey we found various extraordinary species such as the monk-saki monkey, jabirus, neotropical cormorants, river turtles and a group of hoatzins. This was a long ride which gave us the time to stop every time we had an exceptional encounter, and we had so many new sightings! Before lunch, we ended our morning with a fantastic encounter of two species of caimans, some of which got really close to our skiffs. Our lunch was at a rustic house in the middle of the reserve, a very scenic location and wonderful food prepared by our amazing staff.
After lunch, we navigated to a lagoon that is part one of the small tributaries around the Pacaya river. This lagoon was the perfect place to take a swim and refresh after a sunny day of expedition. We came back onboard in the afternoon and got together for a presentation about iPhone photography. At night, our talented staff entertained us with a few Latin American songs. Tomorrow will be our last day of expedition, and everyone feels already so inspired by the beauty of this region.
