Our Emberá guide points to a flock of pelicans in a tight formation, skimming the water. Reaching the bank, a group from our guide’s village is there in welcome. In traditional brightlycolored sarongs and loincloths, their song gets all hands clapping in time. They gift us with our own jagua paint “tattoos,” similar to their own intricate body paint.

The dense canopy spreads wide with wild activity overhead. It’s a game to find howler monkeys or spider monkeys willing to pause their branch-to-branch acrobatics for a photo op. And like hide-and-go-seek, orchids spring up on random branches and mangrove roots. While the flowers’ hiding places are not all that disguised, the rare cotinga is giving a good chase.
