Yanayacu, Pucate & Amazon Natural Park

  • Aboard the Delfin II
  • Amazon
Early this morning, we explored one of the tributaries of the Amazon by skiff. Before venturing into the very vast network of lakes, canals and tributaries of the Amazon, we stopped at the park-ranger station to check in. As we waited a little for everyone to sign the visitors book, an older gentleman in his tiny dugout canoe went by, stopping briefly to proudly show us his catch. In the floor of his little canoe lay a good number of small, and still alive fish. Considering how early in the morning it was, and that the fish very much still alive, one of our guests asked how long it had taken him to catch all this fish, and he responded about one hour. The Amazon is truly teeming with life. In the afternoon, we explored the trails and suspension bridges of the Amazon Nature Park on foot.
