Yanayaquillo Creek and Casual Forest

Jan 10, 2020 - Delfin II


This morning we navigated along the Marañon River and visited an area known as Yanayaquillo. This beautiful creek led us to an even more wonderful place, where the whole lagoon was covered with river lettuce, and several kinds of frogs and even Cayman lizards were observed. In the afternoon, we explored a beautiful forest in the non-flooded area along the Marañon River, searching for tiny creatures such as tarantulas and frogs. The experience of being in the forest surrounded by the exuberant green vegetation surpassed anything we could have hoped to see.
