Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Good shoes are essential if you're going to be doing a lot of walking.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring these with you as you may not be able to get all at some small towns, plus you'll pay lots more.
Photo Equipment: Buy your film,etc in the city/larger towns before you leave.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Definitely a hat with corks (even if it looks silly!) or fly/mosquito netting in some seasons, when the flies and mosquitoes are bad (I'm told that flies are normally always bad out here)
