- 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
After breakfast, your skiff skims the Samiria River and its tributaries, where an abundance of wildlife hides in the deep rainforest, such as blue and yellow macaws, scarlet macaws, toucans, umbrella birds, monkeys, and river others, capybaras and more.
This afternoon, meet the genuinely welcoming people of San Martin de Tipishca Kukama Amazonian community at this riverside community. Your naturalist guide acts as interpreter so that you may talk with them about their life along the Amazon. Of course, no one has to interpret these kids’ bright smiles and wide-eyed curiosity about you. This visit also offers an excellent opportunity to buy easy-to-pack artisanal handicrafts, from painted coconut bowls to surprisingly chic seed bead jewelry. Tipishca Lake formed over 100 years ago by the Las Piedras River cutting through the neck of a sharp meander. It harbors good fish stocks, including piranha and catfish. Bird life on the lake is plentiful, as the lake attracts many species including blue and yellow macaw, grey-necked wood-rails, putrescent tiger-herons, wattle jacanas, amazon and pygmy kingfishers, green ibis, black–collared hawk, black capped mocking thrush, and yellow-rumped caciques. Enjoy live music from a local band aboard the Zafiro followed by a sumptuous dinner.
