Iquitos Caño, Yanayacu-Pucate; Marañón

Aug 12, 2019 - Delfin II

A good way to explore any tropical jungle is to start early when critters are active and the air is fresh and cool. So, very shortly before sunrise, we could already hear the movement around Delfin II in preparation for our first excursion. With watercraft deployed, we were soon face to face with nesting kingfishers and magnificent egrets catching fish from the shores of Iquitos Caño. Later in the morning, we landed for our first walk that included the crossing of seven hanging bridges from which we could get a perspective of the canopy area of this primeval forest. Just before lunch, we had a presentation from Shamana Carola, showing us the different plans and the preparations she takes, caring for people that need her help. In the afternoon, after a photo lecture, we ventured out for a ride in search of the many dolphins that were swimming at the mouth of the Yanayacu River.
