Pacaya River & Ucayali River

Aug 30, 2019 - Delfin II

No matter how often you go out in the rainforest, you always find something different. Today we had our longest outing, both in time and in distance covered, planned so we could get deep into the Pacaya-Samiria Reserve, by way of going up the Pacaya River. Among thousands of birds that framed our navigation all day long, we found four species of monkeys, two caimans, dolphins and some other critters. A very welcomed and beautifully presented lunch at the ‘Jungle Restaurant’ was a great bonus thanks to the great effort of our hotel crew. The afternoon went by as we sailed down the Ucayali in search of our destination for the last day of adventures in the Upper Amazon.
