Pacaya River and Magdalena Creek

  • Aboard the Delfin II
  • Amazon
We woke up at the crack of dawn and loaded the skiffs. During the night we had arrived close to the mouth of the Pacaya River. The sun rays began to reveal a lush forest covered with snowy egrets. As they took off from their perch, the sky was painted with white. We explored the whole morning and our breakfast was in the great “jungle skiff cafeteria.” Mid-morning, it was getting warm, so we stopped in Yanayacu Lagoon. We participated in the “Pirahna Plunge” to cool ourselves. Many pink dolphins showed up to swim pretty close to us. What a great morning and experience! In the afternoon, we explored Magdalena Creek. Different species of birds were sighted. One of the best sightings was of the white chested toucan. It was another great day exploring the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve!
