We floated around this oxbow lake looking for wildlife. We saw caiman, endangered river otters and lots of birds.

Definitely make the trip to the lake as you will see wild life that you would not be able to see otherwise including pirranhas

The tour down river to the lake was filled with all species of birds that our guide identified. We fished for piranhas and caught many. The highlight was following a large family of giant river otters as they caught and ate fish, played with their young and scampered from water to shore.

Watching the Hoatzins in their natural enviornment was well worth it. Giant River Otters were facinating to watch.

We were lucky to see a family of great otters swimming and playing. Had a go at piraña fishing, which were surprisingly small and lots and lots of beautiful birds
