    Sub tropic heat

    by DSwede Updated Sep 22, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Iguazu is in the subtropical rain forest. It can be sunny and raining at the same time, and/or within 5 minutes of each other, only to change again. Bring sun protection and walking shoes. What ever you are wearing should be light and breathable, and handle rain.

    Photo Equipment: waterproof protection from the rain

    Bring your own adapters

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It can rain here and when it does you'll be thankful if you have a rain poncho.

    Photo Equipment: If you're checking Virtualtourist and not bringing a camera I'm terribly surprised. Specifically here I recommend something with at 10x zoom if you're staying in a Falls View Room at the Sheraton so you'll be able to get more up close shots.

    Also highly recommended is some sort of water proof or at least water resistance housing/cover.

    Miscellaneous: As always it is recommended that you bring your own electrical adapters. The rooms here at the Sheraton are sparse at best in the number of outlets they offer you and even more so with the number that take the European plugs so be sure to carry the flat blade type used here as well. See the pic.

    Do not forget...

    Don't bother me, mosquito!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: You will need your most comfrotable walking shoes; about the clothes, it is a very hot place, and some people do prefer shorts and tops (even swimsuit), but remember there are mosquitoes (and other insects) and the sun is implacable.

    Necesitarán sus zapatos más confortables; con respecto a la ropa, es un lugar muy cálido, y algunas personas prefieren los pantalones cortos y las musculosas (e incluso, malla de baño) pero recuerden que hay mosquitos (y otros insectos) y el sol es implacable.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Mosquito repellent and sunblock lotion are a "must".

    Repelente de insectos y protector solar son "obligatorios".

    Photo Equipment: You surely will take a lot of pictures... so bring a lot of film rolls!!!

    Seguramente sacarán un montón de fotos... así que lleven un montón de rollos!!!

    hot weather clothes

    by luzmaria Updated Jan 17, 2004

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: take the lighter clothes you can think of because it s really hot in this region, also get ready to get a bit wet because just by standing near the falls or because of the subtropical showers you re surely going to get wet.

    also a must is a pair of comfortable walking shoes because there are many paths you can take and that means many hours walking.

    Photo Equipment: you will find films there (though more expensive than at home), so you don t have to take your own.

    Bugs, weather and beautiful views

    by acemj Updated Oct 25, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Pack light and bring some bottled water for hiking around the falls.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It's often humid here in the jungle, so be sure to bring appropriate clothing and some bug repellent.

    Photo Equipment: Don't forget your camera gear to capture the beauty. If you have a panoramic feature on your camera, it will help. Also, a telephoto lens would be ideal and if you have water resistant camera, that's also a good idea. You can also try to slow your shutter speed down while photographing the falls in order to create that smooth, silky look that you often see in travel brochures.

    Sunblock and Mosquito Repellent

    by Maggies Written Feb 27, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: It's extremly humid here and of course mosquitos love it so make sure you have mosquito repellent with yourself when you go for a trip. Also, don't forget a sunblock as the sun is really strong here.
