- On our descent through the cloud forest, we may see some squirrel monkeys “Saimiri Sciureus” and Common Wooly monkeys “Lagothrix Lagothricha” and we will see more orchids and birds that are typical of this ecosystem.
- Visit to the place where the national bird of Peru, the Andean “Cock of the Rock” or “Rupicola Peruviana” come together for the mating season. If the time is right, it is possible to witness an incredible display of pageantry and color from these attractive birds
- Vsit the Macaw,parrots and parakeet lick or “Collpa". We travel by motorboat to see these beehive-like cliffs over the river where the macaws congregate to “lick” the abundant clay in order to obtain essential salts, both for their nutrition and to neutralize the poison from seeds that they eat. It is a truly fascinating sight.
