Belluda Creek and Dorado River

  • Aboard the Delfin II
  • Amazon
This morning we explored a lovely tributary of the Ucayali River, Belluda Creek. We left Delfin II right after breakfast to explore the creek. The skiffs cruised through the narrow stream over the aquatic vegetation. Different species of birds were sighted as we pass next to the forest edge. The air was filled with a mix of bird calls.   We all enjoyed what nature had for us. For the afternoon, we explored Dorado River. At the mouth of this tributary, a small village was settled by “ Ribereños. ” The kids rapidly shared with us the different species of fishes their parents had caught during the day. Their friendly faces were all captured by our cameras. We kept exploring the river until sunset. Our naturalist brought out the spotlights because it was the perfect moment to start looking for caimans. As the light was pointed at the aquatic vegetation, red eyes began to show up. Different sizes of spectacle caimans, as well as black caimans, were sighted. What a great way to finish another day exploring the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve.
