On your first morning with us, we recommend getting up early to appreciate one of the most important zones of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. Never does nature seem more bountiful than in the tropics, and early rising is always rewarding since wildlife is most abundant and active with the rising of the sun. The early morning hours are the best time of day to watch birds, observe their special displays and listen to their songs.
We will jump on the skiffs and head to this area with large trees and old palm trees as well, these components favour the presence of several parrot species. This particular spot has a great number of other birds of different species. We will look for the famous hoatzins nesting a few feet above water, and perhaps a sloth or two of the three toed kind.
Amazon Natural Park - This unique opportunity, you will get to the only Canopy Walkway in this area, an experience unequalled in the rainforest! At a height of over 25 meters (85 feet) and extending for 500 meters the Canopy Walkway provides a view 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. You will enjoy “Terra Firma” forest.
In the afternoon we will 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 his expert eye to pinpoint all the biodiversity of this region. If you want to interact directly with the waters of the Amazon, you can go out on one of our kayaks.
You will even have the opportunity to spot the famous pink dolphins!
At nightfall, your naturalist guides will invite you to board one of our skiss. At night, the biodiversity of the jungle totally changes. You will search for alligators, bats and more nocturnal creatures that are so interesting and unique as daytime.
