    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Please do not bring those BIG bags...you will need bermudas, shorts, sandals, soft dresses.If you intend to go to restaurants or shows at night you will need pantalons , a good shoe and maybe a sportive jacket.For women a social dress or patalon and a beautiful blouse... :)
    Do not use those flowered shirts PLEASE !!!!It uis written 'gringo' on them and here 'gringo' is not a bad word.For us it just means 'strangers', 'foreigners' and although to the majority it is a nice thing to ppl who like to rob it is 'wonderful' to find out a 'gringo'

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you come from january to march bring an umbrella with you or buy it here cause is too cheap

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Here if you need a medicine you can buy it under receipt of your doctor.I would bring your own medicines if I were you.

    Photo Equipment: Here you will have all you need to take pics.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: I'm 59 and I don't use to pay attention to campings, sorry

    Miscellaneous: nothing in particular

    ...make sure,you have a cap on your head - if you have a hairstyle like me - the sun is extremely hot and dangerous up here in the mountains...

    suntan oil

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sun block with the highest SPF quotient.

    Photo Equipment: 35mm camera. All the photos I took were taken with a Kodak Advantix which is so idiot-proof even I could use it.
