    Luggage and bags: The night life is fun here, take nice close to go out, most guys will do just fine with khakis, a nice shirt and shoes (not snikers). During the day something fresh, it is subtropical and it can get pretty hot. If you go to the rain forest, make sure to take boots of track shoes and wear repelent.

    Luggage and bags: Bring some waterproof package, in Santa Cruz it often rains at the least expected moment.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: While in the city wear either sandals or walking shoes. In the countryside wear hiking boots.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: If you go to the Rain Forest bring with you plenty of mosquito repellent and make sure you have your yellow fever vaccine. An antidote against snake poison. All of this can be bought in Santa Cruz. Among the good pharmacies you can find 'Farmacia Telchi' or 'Farmacia Santa María' (they are both chains).

    Photo Equipment: You can find all sorts of camera and battery equipment in down town Santa Cruz in Korean owned shops around 'Calle Ayacucho' and 'Calle Libertad'. If you want to develop your films in 1 hour go to 'ABC Color' (chain), serious and professional, plus used to tourists.

    Luggage and bags: Whatever you would ordinarily use in the way of luggage. We always pack one or two completely empty over the shoulder carry on bags for those extra things that you pick up along the way. They come in very handy and don't take up too much space.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The usual advice, gain some knowledge of what you will be doing and select the kinds of shoes, hiking gear or other useful items that you will need.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: A common sense consideration. Sunglasses, blockers, aspirins, those 'must have' items, chapsticks and the rest you can get on site.

    Photo Equipment: Anyone who is into photography these days knows what they will need and if they don't, they sure will not forget next time.
