We were planning on an early skiff ride to explore Pahuachiro Creek, but we woke up at 5:30 a.m. to heavy rain. We had a delicious breakfast and then headed to Casual Trail, where locals sold their wares at our landing point. A few of them joined our hike to help us find animals to photograph. We observed an anaconda, a red-tailed boa constrictor, a poison dart frog, a large tarantula, and lots of endemic plants.

After a spectacular lunch and a siesta, we finally took our skiff ride. Despite heavy rain during the first part of the trip, we saw lots of squirrel monkeys and birds. Guests in one of the skiffs saw pink dolphins.
