Day 3. Otters in the jungle

To see the giant otters we will have to get up very early and walk with our guide approx. 5 ½ kmts. to Cocococha oxbow lake. On the way we will have the opportunity to observe plants, exotic insects, colorful butterflies, birds, monkeys and, with a bit of luck, perhaps even see some of the large mammals. After arriving to the lake we will hide in a strategic hiding place and will wait the otters to appear to be observed. While waiting we will take the chance to have a refreshment. Afterwards canoes will be available for us to go for a short ride around the lake watching the wildlife on the shoreline. Back in the jungle lodge we will probably have a late lunch and also have the afternoon free for relaxing or doing independent activities for those who wish to do them. Before the sun sets we will do with our guide a short afternoon walk to the Sunset Point and watch the beautiful Amazon rainforest sunset. After the sun sets we will board the canoes once again to look for and watch caimans with torches.
