It is usual to wake up with the sound of howler monkeys in the early morning, then the birds and parakeets that fly through the red morning sky. Before leaving we will have a coffee or tea. The journey on this remote stretch of the Tambopata River runs through areas of high biodiversity offering unbeatable opportunities to see birds and animals such as capybara, jaguar, turtles and alligators in places of extraordinary natural beauty. After 20 minutes we will arrive at the place called Colpa Chunchos where we observe at a prudent distance, different species of macaws (8) and many species of parrots and parakeets congregate in increasing numbers and then descend to eat the mineral salts present in the clay walls from the banks of the river. This is a natural spectacle of sound and color that lasts only a few hours very early in the morning (those who want to take close-up photos of the macaws- we recommend 400mm powerful lenses). Then we will have a light breakfast on the beach followed by a short walk through the forest looking for mammal tracks, observing birds and animals.
