Supay, Iricahua & Yarapa River

Mar 09, 2019 - Delfin II


This is our last day of expedition, and for me, the last day after immersing myself for three weeks in the Peruvian Upper Amazon. For any keen naturalist, birder, or enthusiastic photographer, the Amazon rainforest is the ultimate location. During this week, we have seen beautiful animals and been spoiled with the many opportunities to get wonderful shots, and today was no exception.

We started our day with a visit to Supay. We had the choice to explore this area by kayak, paddle boarding, or an enjoyable skiff ride. No matter what option we took, a gorgeous landscape and unique wildlife were there, ready to surprise us. Later on, we explored another area called Iricahua, a great place for birding.

In the afternoon, we had our last opportunity to visit a village and buy some local handcrafts. We ended this outing discovering a new species of monkey that inhabit the Yarapa River: the wooly monkey. Enjoying these interesting and curious monkeys was the perfect ending to a wonderful week.
