We woke up to a beautiful sunrise over the Marañon River. After breakfast, we were outfitted with rubber boots for a hike in the jungle. After a short skiff ride, we entered the rainforest for a beautiful hike in Casual Forest, where we saw an abundance of fascinating creatures. There were two different poison arrow frogs, a giant monkey frog, and a huge tarantula, among others. On the way back to the landing we walked through the “rainforest mall” where locals go to sell their crafts.

When we got back onboard, the photo team put together a lightroom demo and the bartender taught a pisco sour masterclass. After lunch (and siesta), Denis, one of our naturalists, presented a talk on the future of the Amazon.

In the afternoon we took the skiffs up Nauta Creek and saw a harpy eagle, a lemon throated barbet, a great potoo, a plum throated codinga and night monkeys.
