Pacaya River & Ucayali River

Aug 23, 2019 - Delfin II

Having very successfully explored the Pacaya on our night skiff ride the previous day, we knew we were onto something good today. And this unbelievable place did not disappoint! Sighting after sighting as we made our way into the deepest part of the reserve, passing troops of red-howler and Isabel saki monkeys, black and white caymans, several boas, hundreds of yellow-spotted turtles and at least 85 different species of birds, all before lunch! We had lunch in the middle of the jungle, and on the way back did a stop over to swim on a lake surrounded by several pink dolphins. We spent the afternoon relaxing onboard, enjoying the passing forests of the Ucayali.
