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
You can find a lot of crafts and other stuff in Ipanema fair.
- beach slippers (don`t know if it`s the correct name...) are much more cheaper than here!!
Do not forget your umbrella!!! It was very useful (and very used!)
¡No te olvides del paraguas!!! Me resultó muy útil (¡y muy utilizado!)
What to pack for a tour around Rio ???
...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...
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.
