Tips

Traveler Responsibilities

One of the most important things you must be aware of is that you have to respect the indigenous and farmer’s privacy, it means, not trespassing their houses, taking any pictures of them, or taking their belongings without their permission.

With respect to your own belongings, try to pack light, as less as you pack you will have a better experience.

You need to be conscious of having a good health.

Since you are visiting an archeological destination, you must take care of everything you find along the way. Do not harm any natural or cultural property.

Think of this tour as an opportunity to connect yourself with the nature because there is no signal for mobile phones, you need to tell both your family and friends that you will be out of reach for period of four or five days.

Clothing and Equipment

The weather you can expect is hot and humid, that’s why it is really important to take with you comfortable clothes, that is: t-shirts and shorts for walking; on the other hand, temperature tends to go down at night, in this case we recommend you to bring a change of long pants and long sleeves shirts, they will help you to be protected against mosquitoes and also from the cold.

Do not forget to take a water bottle (1 ½ liter is enough) once you get to the camps you can refill with filtered water or just buy a new bottle, insect repellent, sunscreen, comfortable clothes, walking shoes or trekking boots, swimsuit, 2 plastic bags( to separate wet and dry clothes) and last but not least, a camera.

You will not find toiletries at the camps, so those are important items (soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, towel, and deodorant, among others).

Even though our tour guides have preparation in first aid, they are not allowed to give you any medicine, you need to bring it with you.

The camp sites are equipped with hammocks and beds, they also provide blankets and mosquito nets. Taking a sleeping bag is optional.
