Ucayali River, Pacaya-Samiria Reserve, Peru

Jan 19, 2019 - Delfin II


After a night of heavy rain and lightning, we awoke to beautiful, dry weather.   In the morning, we explored two narrow, blackwater streams named Iricahua and Cedro Caño.  During lunch, we made our way down the Ucayali River to our afternoon destination at the Yarapa River.  Here, one final skiff ride ended our magical exploration of the upper Amazon of Peru.
