Supay, Iricahua, Yarapa River

  • Aboard the Delfin II
  • Amazon
On our last day exploring the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, we started by exploring Supay River. We cruised on the skiffs along this river, before breakfast. A cool breeze was felt as we began spotting green iguanas taking advantage of the first sun rays. Different species of birds, such as white-headed marsh tyrants, black-crown night herons and a big flock of migratory purple martins were seen along the marsh area of this small tributary. Back on board for breakfast, we repositioned to another tributary, Iricahua River. This narrow river allowed us to experience the cruising through the varsea forest. More primates were sighted by our guests. The emergent trees were home to these agile mammals. Our last skiff ride was done late afternoon along the Yarapa River. Each of our sightings along the river was a small glimpse into the massive biodiversity of the Upper Amazon. We all gathered at the end of the day, in the lounge, to share our thoughts about our experience we all had exploring this paradise. It was just a life-changing experience!
