Belluda Caño and Rio Zapote

Jan 21, 2020 - Delfin II


We awoke to cool temperatures and what, at first, we thought would be a rainy day. But the rain of the night gave way to comfortable and clear conditions as we began our exploration of the Belluda Caño Creek. Almost immediately we were greeted by the sounds of monkeys, spotting both Isabel saki monkeys and saddle-backed tamarins within the first stretch of creek. All sorts of wondrous creatures foraged and perched in the treetops. It is a time of abundance for food and courtship. We even got to see a ringed kingfisher spread his wings as he tried to woo a female.
