    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: up to you, but I would recommend a small backpack, which can be used for all daytrips

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: good shoes essential, boots would come handy and my advice, natural fabrics are the best, white...mosquitos somehow do not like it

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: no problems with that, but of course if you prefer ...bring your own.
    medication, ask your GP, usually you get everything in Drugstores without prescription

    Photo Equipment: it is humid and wet, protect your gear, sealable plasticbag these days should do the trick

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: well, thats up to you...but in the Jungle or Rainforest, some special care has to be taken of...

    Miscellaneous: torch, pocketknife, toiletpaper, lighter are all useful wee gadgets to have....the old Docks in Belem are a good place to stock up on essentials, Mercado Velho. ...Ver-O-Peso for fresh food

    Packing List

    Luggage and bags:
    The smaller the better. You just do not need much in this area of the world.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear:
    During rainy season, the obvious. Sturdy shoes, but there is nothing that you cannot buy. We always pack a couple of empty cloth bags for all the just in case purchases. Go light, come home heavy. Ship anything that you don't need right away. Even from one city to another, it works and is not terribly expensive.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies:
    As little as possible. All of these areas have toiletries and medicines, probably a lot cheaper than you would pay for them at home and usually with no Rx.

    Blame it on the rain

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: you can bet your bottom dollar it will rain almost every day (usually early afternoon ) for at least a while. Bring an umbrella.
