Boardwalk and canoa from Napo River to lodge, then afternoon excursion with Guillermo and Rodrigo in canoa. We saw 2-3 Giant Otters, distantly, as well as the large Black Caiman named “Lucy” that hangs out near the lodge. As we canoed through the igapó forest we heard the strange rumbling sound of the numerous boca chica fish, which must be spawning right now. Overcast.
