Day Description Arrival Departure
Saturday, May 7, 2022 Lima, Peru

Arrive in Lima and spend the night at the Wyndham Costa del Sol.

Sunday, May 8, 2022 Lima, Iquitos, and Nauta

Today, we’ll fly to Iquitos and proceed to Nauta, where we’ll embark Delfin II. Once on board, the enthusiastic naturalists and expedition leader will set the informal tone for your expedition. Our chef will introduce you to Peru’s haute cuisine and local delicacies, all prepared with an Amazonian flair.

Monday, May 9, 2022 Pacaya Samiria National Reserve

Today’s focus will be the Pucate, one of three main rivers in the reserve. With experienced naturalists, we’ll explore a black water stream aboard skiffs and kayaks, looking for parrots, macaws, and monkeys such as the monk saki, with its gray and black body, and the small orange-tinged saddle-back tamarin.

Tuesday, May 10, 2022 Pacaya Samiria National Reserve

Today, hike to see the Amazonian vegetation and wildlife, distinctly different from that in the seasonally flooded forests, or travel up-river by skiff. We’ll arrive at the juncture where Ucayali and Marañon rivers merge to form the Amazon and visit the Sapuena village to learn about the life of the ribereños.

Wednesday, May 11, 2022 Pacaya Samiria National Reserve

Today we venture to find giant Amazonian water lily floating in small lagoons. We’ll birdwatch along a trail, learn about caciques and oropendolas, and look for dolphins at the junction of the El Dorado River. We may also see iguana, sloths, squirrel monkeys, and other diurnal and nocturnal life riverside.

Thursday, May 12, 2022 Pacaya Samiria National Reserve

Sail further into the heart of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. We’ll hike in classical rain forests that sustain innumerable plants and animal species, to reach the giant kapok tree. By skiff we’ll head to Yanayacu Lagoon, looking for red howler and capuchin monkeys, three-toed sloths, and parrots.

Friday, May 13, 2022 Pacaya Samiria National Reserve

By skiff we’ll head to a quiet lagoon in search of the shorebirds and wildlife that appear only when the river is very low. At this time, huge white sandy beaches emerge and young, sometimes temporary, river islands form, creating special ecosystems favorable to sand pipers, terns, and kingfishers.

Saturday, May 14, 2022 Pacaya Samiria National Reserve

By skiff we’ll stop at Puerto Miguel Village to learn about the residents’ culture, traditions, and folklore. Back aboard, the talented staff on Delfin II will delight you with some live music.

Sunday, May 15, 2022 Nauta, Iquitos, and Lima

After lunch we disembark and return to Iquitos by bus for our flight to Lima. After checking in at the Wyndham Costa del Sol, we’ll visit the Museo Larco museum of pre-Columbian artifacts and then have dinner at the museum’s café. If you depart Lima tonight, you will have a day room to rest in before your late evening flight.

Monday, May 16, 2022 Lima

After breakfast this morning, we proceed to the airport in Lima for flights home or on to other adventures.
