It took almost 4 hours on the Tambopata River to get to the Tambopata Research Center.

We saw a family of Capybara, geese, herons, macaws, howler monkeys, and a glimpse of a great river otter! I saw it move into the underbrush, at least. We also caught a glimpse of the Andes in the distance.

The rooms were similar to the Refugio Amazonas, but there were hammocks in the common area.

We took a late afternoon walk, had dinner, then listened to a short lecture on their Macaw Project.
