After a hearty breakfast, take a another walk in the forest, as each and every spot is different and has its own charm. The forest is full of tropical animals, so if you didn’t manage to get a glimpse on one yesterday, here’s your second chance.



If you have enjoyed your early-morning experience, it’s time to head back to the river in the afternoon again to admire and take pictures of many animal species living and finding shelter along the river bank. Then off to meet with the giant otters. You will also be right on time to be impressed by the wonderful colors of the sunset.
