What to Take

  • Most people automatically assume that the weather is hot in South America, but because of the higher altitude in the Andes, the temperature can feel quite cold, especially at night.
  • We recommend using a backpack for your convenience, or a medium-sized suitcase if you prefer.
  • A daypack is also essential for carrying everyday items.
  • Space is limited on transportation, so there is a limit of one main piece of luggage per person.
  • You will be responsible for carrying your own luggage.
