Ideally, clothing for activities should be light and comfortable, so you can make the most of your experiences. Bear in mind that during certain activities, such as canoeing, your clothing might get wet. At the hotel, take the opportunity to wear comfortable informal clothing, whether enjoying your dinner or relaxing in your room. During certain months of the year, the nights can be much cooler, so it is advisable to bring a warmer outer garment. Check the season and forecasts when planning your trip. Finally, bathing suits are always a good idea, for when you cannot resist a refreshing bathe in the river.
Clothes for hiking should ideally be made of light material that allows the body to sweat. Items that provide protection from the sun are also a good idea. We recommend wearing neutral colors, such as beige, green and gray, to enhance your chances of spotting wildlife, avoiding bright or light colors, such as orange, red or white. Bring long socks that can be worn over the bottom of your trousers when out on the trail.
Cristalino Lodge has signed up to the Pack for a Purpose initiative, an NGO program that encourages travelers to include in their luggage contributions to the communities at the destinations they are visiting.
Look at the list on the Pack for a Purpose website. You can help the communities that Cristalino Lodge works with, in partnership with the Cristalino Foundation, by bringing small items such as school books, drawing materials, soccer balls, clothes or musical instruments. The items will be donated to the ongoing educational activities. Your contribution can make an important difference!
