In the second week of December 2021 I saw this Puma near the lodge resting in the dense bushes. Afterwards I saw him a couple of times passing right in front of the river or near the swimming pool. He is always passing by when you the least expect it. Either right before lunch time or late in the afternoon, especially when it is too hot to go on a hike.
I automatically look at the river side before doing something else or leave and that is when I saw something brown standing there. First I thought it was a deer, but this one was a bit bigger so yes... second thought was the Puma. Excited as I was, I started heading towards the pier while taking pictures. I called the others at the lodge too. Some came looking and others were afraid to go to the pier again alone.
This whole experience lasted at least one minute before he disappeared into the bushes but what an encounter.
