Amazon Natural Park & Nauta Creek

Jan 22, 2019 - Delfin II


Day two in the Amazon did not disappoint, and it never seems to. We timed our excursions perfectly, avoiding the mid-day sun, but also dodging the intermittent Amazonian downpours. We made the most of our morning, walking through the canopy of Amazon Natural Park and gazing through a sloth’s-eye view of the most biodiverse ecosystem in the world. We then sailed down the mighty Marañon River to Nauta Creek, where we launched our kayaks for a peaceful evening paddle back to our beloved Delfin II.
