Pacaya River & Night Walk, 12/20/2019, Delfin II

  • Aboard the Delfin II

I had the feeling that was going to be a fantastic day, and I was not wrong! We started this day very early, at 5:30, with a great exploration morning in the remote Pacaya River, which is the farthest destination we will reach in our expedition this week.

We took our skiffs as far as we could looking for wildlife. We had great sightings. It was extraordinary! All of us saw several red howler monkey troops, hoatzins, hundreds of egrets, neotropical cormorants and several three toed-sloths. At around 8:30 we stopped at Ranger Station #2, where we had time to stretch our legs and enjoy a great breakfast off the ship.

In the late afternoon, we went for a night walk, equipped with rubber boots, insect repellent and flashlights, to experience the rainforest at night. It was very muddy and bug-filled, but we had some good sightings that included tarantulas and frogs. It was certainly a long day but well worth the effort!
