Luggage and bags: pack light. I thought I'd need a lot for school but even that was informal. Down size Downsize Downsize
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: one sweatshirt, shorts, bathing suits, pants ( more if you plan to stay in the city)
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Enough contact solution(very expensive there and not what I needed)
Luggage and bags: Best type of bag to take on a trip to Central America is so light as you can. Specially because in some of this countries people are poor and most of people give some pieces. I recommend you in some countries take with you a bag with things that people without this things could need: specially I saw was really urge for babies. Thx!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In this countries maybe you'll not find all the clothing, shoes, weather gear... that sometimes you need. For this reason think about it! Good shoes is really an important piece in your lugagge.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: A good Medical Kit can be done for the same chemist.
Photo Equipment: If you take with you a photographic equipment in some of this countries could be difficult find a place to re-charge a digital camera, mobile... or find the batteries that the camera use. If you can, buy one more 'Just in case' :-P
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Raining periods are common. Umbrella! If you stay in a great outdoor 'be careful!' to be next to a river...
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Camping
Photo Equipment: Buy waterproof cameras at home or in Panama ($8 approx) to make the most of whitewater rafting and snorkelling trips in Costa Rica and Honduras. APS films available (200 only) but quite expensive everywhere but Panama where all photo supplies were readily available and good value.
SUMMIT TIP - Aloe
Luggage and bags: Aloe will become your best friend if you're a bonehead like me and don't wear SPF that's strong enough. It's takes the "OWWW" to "AHHHHH!"Related to:
- Sailing and Boating
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: SUNSCREEN!!!!! In the Northern Hemisphere Spring, the Sun is DIRECTLY overhead at noontime and can burn some people in just a few minutes.Related to:
Miscellaneous: urge of discovery...: at a first look the town seems very... basic and it is but at least for a stop over of a few hours it is worth seeing...
Miscellaneous: Picture: Tikal in full moon light.
There are many more of these drawings in my new Paintsville Page!
