GENERAL TRIP EQUIPMENT The enclosed equipment list describes the specific items you will want to consider bringing. Keep in mind it is a tropical environment and will generally be warm. FOOTWEAR: the best hiking is lightweight trekking shoes with traction and mid high ankle support. Bring an extra pair of lightweight dry shoes or sandals to change into after the day`s hike. Sports sandals (that securely strap on such as the teva brand), are comfortable footwear anywhere on the coast, and around your lodge. HEADWEAR: A light hat with a wide brim, including protection for the back of the neck is best. A tie under the chin is advisable to prevent possible loss due to wind on boats. COLD TEMPERATURE AND RAIN GEAR: A lightweight rain coat or poncho is very useful. A light to medium-weight jacket, sweater or synthetic fleece garment is necessary for cool nights at high elevations such as Savegre Valley highlands. FLASHLIGHTS: Flashlights are important for getting around the more remote lodges at night as they do not have electrical power 24 hours a day. DAYPACK: A good quality day pack is necessary to carry thinks like your water bottle, camera, binoculars, snack food, fields’ guides and rain jacket.
