WHAT TO PACK

Please note that all the items listed on this page are just simple recommendations, feel free to always bring what you think is best for you, at the same time have a lot of common sense in the quantity and size of each of the products you obtain considering the amount of days of your expedition/retreat. Remember, that the more compacted you pack, the lighter your load will be during long strenuous treks through the jungle. In a few words "PACK LIGHT AND SMART".
