Proper clothing

Prefer light clothes that can be worn in layers and comfortable flat shoes

You will definitely need waterproof and windproof jackets.

For Amazonia, in particular, take with you comfortable trousers and shirts/T-shirts with long sleeves (a necessary protection from the mosquito bites) hats, sunscreens and waterproof jackets.

The best solution for exchanging money is the ATM if you are prepared, of course, to pay the required commission. Credit cards are used in all the hotels.

1 EUR = 1.17544 USD
