Day 02: ADVENTURE BOOTCAMP: PSAL-PACAYA SAMIRIA NATIONAL RESERVE

After breakfast we will go to the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve to an area called “NautaCaño”. During our excursion we will search for pink and gray dolphins near the gorge of the same name. We will also be immersed in the wide variety of flora and fauna the reserve offers. The first thing that will call your attention is how the river water perfectly reflects the sky, clouds, vegetation and large trees along the river banks. Visitors will have the sensation of sailing between endless mirrors, which is why Pacaya Samiria is also known as “the forest of mirrors”. We will also go for a walk through the flooded forests, where we will try to see some primates and sloths. During the journey we can also observe a variety of birds and the traditional Amazonian subsistence fishing practice.
Next, we will return to the Lodge to visit the women’s crafts center (seasonal) of the San Jorge community, known for their work with natural Chambira fiber and Wingo or pumpkin carving. You will have down time, followed by dinner.
