Have you been to the Disneyland ride to the jungle? This is a thousand times cooler and better. But having ridden both rides, I must say Disney had it right on target, but nothing beats the real thing.
We continued floating by the canals, went into a smaller canal, which if my memory is correct is one of the man-made ones. These jungles are home to three different monkeys – howler, spider, and white faced. We saw all while staying in Pachira.
What a thrill! I cannot explain the pulchritude of the place or how affected I was of its serenity, beauty, power, and strength. If allowed I would not mind taking this boat trip every single day. So many things to see and hear and experience. Jaguars are said to live here, we didn’t see one that day. I wonder if they would come closer to the water. My guess is that they would stay deep in the forest.
Birdwatching is excellent, although there weren’t many birds. We saw enough to satisfy us.
A nocturnal bird that was hiding in the thicket.
Preoccupied with shooting the caiman.
Looks like somebody spotted some monkeys.
Friendly competition on who saw it first.
As we were nearing dock, I looked back at the canal and this is what I saw.
This is my entry for this week's WATERY WEDNESDAY.
