Clothing for adventures in the Rainforest:

Dri-fit clothing

This sportswear keeps your muscles warm and also brings sweat to the surface of the clothing so that it can evaporate.

Long Sleeve Shirts and Trousers

The best thing to do is to put on zipper trousers, because this way you can always shorten your trousers quickly in case it gets too warm. Regarding what to wear in the Amazon rainforest, long sleeves and long trousers are probably the best tip we can give you, because they help you avoid getting bitten by mosquitos or other insects.

Loose Cotton Clothing (Shirts)

This also protects you from mosquitos and from the intense sun of the Amazon jungle.

  • A pair of comfortable sneakers and/or hiking shoes (must have good traction for slippery surfaces)
  • Water shoes – any type of junky sneaker or shoe that you don’t mind getting wet that will give a secure fit. Not crocks.
  • Light Windbreaker

Vaccinations & Medication

Before your tour, it is advisable seeing your doctor to make sure that you have any necessary medication with you. Malaria pills or yellow fever vaccination is not necessary. All of our team members did the tour without vaccination and didn’t have problems.
