- 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
After breakfast, your skiffs skim 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, river others, capybaras, and more.
Later today, 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 chic seed bead jewelry.
Tipishca Lake formed over 100 years ago by the Las Piedras River cutting through the neck of a sharp meander. Lake Tipishca harbors good fish stocks, including piranha and catfish. Bird life on the lake is plentiful, as the lake attracts many species which include: blue and yellow macaw, grey-necked wood-rails, putrescent tigerherons, wattle jacanas, Amazon and pygmy kingfishers, green ibis, black–collared hawk, black-capped mocking thrush, and yellow-rumped caciques. You might also spot hoatzins, red-capped cardinals, and ringed kingfishers.
