Zapote and Pacaya Rivers

Mar 15, 2019 - Delfin II


Today we explored the most remote areas of the week’s voyage by skiff. A morning ride through the Zapote River brought us up close and personal with the endemic monk saki monkey. The flooded lagoons off the Pacaya River, with their towering isolated trees, were a departure from the densely vegetated forest we’ve grown accustomed to this week, and were the backdrop for some great bird-watching.
