Many things were put on hold during the peak of the pandemic, including travel. We reveled today in visiting the deepest reaches of the Pacaya-Samaira National Reserve. We visited areas that our local guides have not had the opportunity to explore in almost three years. We were richly rewarded by sightings of capybaras, brown capuchins, squirrels, Isabel’s sakis, and red howlers. The bird species sighted numbered over three dozen. The weather gave us a reminder that we are in a tropical rainforest, as the skies dumped a cleansing rain on us and everything else as we made our way back to Delfin II. It was an awesome experience of the sounds, sights, and smells of the rainforest.
