Just to report , how great was being at Bosque Santa Lúcia with a great group from Regatta Ship, We began with a scenic drive on the only highway in the area to an elevation of 518 feet, considered a high altitude level in the otherwise flat region of the Amazon.
From the Port the bus entered a rugged roadway leading to the forest of Santa Lucia. Along the way you could observe different stages of "slash and burn" agriculture and the effect it has on the forest. At Bosque Santa Lucia, we took a forest trails for a nature walk. This forest contains more than 400 different species of regional trees, some of which have been labeled for easy identification. Although a secondary forest,
Bosque Santa Lucia offers most of the characteristics that otherwise exist in the more distant, inaccessible virgin forest, such as widely diversified species of trees and plants making use of nutrient-poor tropical soils.
