Aboard Defin I
Good morning! We recommend an early wake up to experience a beautiful sunrise over one of the most important zones of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. Never does nature seem more bountiful than in the tropics and an early start is especially rewarding since wildlife is most abundant and active with the rising of the sun. The morning hours are the best time of day to watch birds, observe their various displays and listen to their songs. Jump on the skiffs and head to Las Palmas, an area with large, old trees that create a comfortable spot for several species of parrot species. You will see a great number of other birds and you can look for the famous hoatzins nesting a few feet above water. Perhaps even a three-toed sloth or two may appear to say hello!
Next, cruise through the Yanayacu and Pucate Rivers, peeking into different creeks and lagoons. This is one of the best preserved and protected zones of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. Your guide will use an expert eye to pinpoint all the biodiversity of this region. If you want to interact directly with the waters of the Amazon, you can head out on one of the kayaks or paddleboards. You may even have the opportunity to see the famous pink dolphins!
In the Amazon Natural Park you will have a very special opportunity to experience the only canopy walkway in this area, an experience unequaled in the rainforest! At a height of over 85 feet and extending for one-third of a mile, the canopy walkway provides views of the rainforest from the treetops, the best vantage point for observing Amazon wildlife and vegetation. The suspended walkway is spread between 14 of the area’s largest rainforest trees and is one of the longest canopy walkways in the world.
Return to the Delfin I to relax, enjoy dinner and talk about your day. After dinner, your guides will treat you to a fascinating lecture on Shamanism.
