Marayali Caño, Amazonas Village & Clavero Lake

Jan 30, 2019 - Delfin II


Today was another full day exploring the Amazon region. We began with a peaceful morning skiff ride on Marayali Caño where we saw teeming bird life. After breakfast we visited the small village of Amazonas along the banks of the Marañon River. The local people, known as ribereños, greeted us warmly into their homes and we were given a presentation on how the Lindblad Expeditions/National Geographic Fund helps support these communities through Minga Peru. In the afternoon, we passed the mouth of the Amazon River and navigated up the Ucayali River where we took a dip in Clavero Lake.
