WHAT TO TAKE ON A TRIP TO THE AMAZON?
Amazon is an unusual destination, where we want to be fit without losing the style, right? At the same time, those who go to the jungle have to think about practicality and can not forget anything, because there is no way to solve it in the middle of the jungle.
It was in pain that I learned the tips that I will teach in this post, since my bag for the Amazon was not perfect.
WHAT TO USE IN MANAUS
In Manaus it is very quiet. A big hot town, but that is not on the coast. Lightweight, comfortable and lightweight looks that are not too bare to circulate more easily around the city.
Do not bother to take high heels, even if you go to more formal restaurants.
For boating, a bathing suit, slippers and something light on top are enough.
WHAT TO USE IN THE JUNGLE
If you also sleep in the middle of the forest, the suitcase scheme is already different. I spent three days and two nights at the Jungle Lodge Juma Lodge. The program included varied walks, such as two walks in the jungle, canoeing, alligator focus and piranhas fishing. You need to think about it all.
They ask you not to overdo it in your luggage, that's true. But that does not mean you should take the clothes counted, as I did.
In the hotel it is easy to be more comfortable with shorts and sleeveless shirts, because it is very hot during the day and in this region of the Amazon there is not much mosquito (where the rivers are dark).
Swimsuit or bikini for bathing in Rio are essential. Swimsuit is cool because by putting a shorts you get a look.
Already for the walks in the woods it is important to be in pants and sneakers. If you have those trekking boots, you can take them. If you have not, any gym shoes will solve. Stay calm.
The clothes get very dirty and you will not want to use it twice. Besides, it rains like hell in the Amazon and not rarely the walks are carried out anyway. So always have two changes!
In necessaire the most important item is the repellent. The sunscreen need not even remember, does it? For the face I take one with color, to maintain the dignity of the skin. By the way, you can take just about everything out of your makeup bag. It's unnecessary weight. At most you will get a clear lipstick. So relax!
Things I did not think to take and were missing were raincoats and flashlights.
Finally, as you will be hours away from a pharmacy or hospital, take basic medicines. I took it for muscle pain, analgesic, for colic, for diarrhea, antiallergic and medicine for nausea.
