Packing List, Manaus
Luggage and bags:
For the jungle,, the best way to carry your luggage is of course a big satchel.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In the jungle: Comfortable clothes, cotton best, and swimming clothes, sunglasses, cap, and soap to wash clothes, if you find it necessary.
Mosquito net is not really necesary. Though they are quite big, there are not so many (in the Black River. If you go to Solimooes it could be different).
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: For the jungle: Towel, insects repelent, sun protector.
Photo Equipment: It´s of course imposible to buy films in the jungle, so that you´d better take as many as you can before.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Not recommended in the jungle, because of the snakes and animals in general.
