Recommendations for Preparation
Needed for optional purchases such as souvenirs. US currency is good for all of that, but make sure your bills are in virtually new or mint condition.
Other Things to Bring
Sun block (you are close to the equator where there is less atmospheric protection from UV); insect repellent; canteen or water bottle; binoculars; flashlight with spare batteries; bring biodegradable soap and shampoo; personal first aid kit; personal toiletries; small battery operated fan; daypack or small backpack. We provide three meals a day but if you like to snack between meals bring some snacks in zip lock bags.
Clothes for the Jungle
Long and short pants; long sleeved shirts and tee shirts; rain gear; hat with brim; swim suit; comfortable footwear and flip flops. We have jungle rubber boots in various sizes available for you (it is important to use our boots to help prevent the spread of amphibian chytridiomycosis disease, spread from microscopic soil particles from foreign forests). Bring high socks to wear in the boots. Canoe enthusiasts like reef walkers or water moccasins. Daytime high temperatures are 80-88 F
