What to Pack Multi-Stop Tours

What to Take on BnB Colombia Multi-Stop Tours

The majority of people immediately assume that the weather is hot in South America, however because of the higher elevation in the Andes, the temperature level can really feel fairly chilly, specifically in the evening. Remember that although near the Equator, the greater altitude on some components of the journey produces great nights and you will require a warm coat or pullover. It’s best to layer clothes as opposed to bring a thick jacket so that you can take layers off when needed.
We advise making use of a backpack or medium-sized suitcase if you are more comfortable with that. A daypack is additionally essential for carrying your daily items, such as water and snacks. The room is limited on transport (that’s whether you’re traveling via car, bus or plane), so there is a limit of one main piece of travel luggage each. And be sure to remember you will be responsible for lugging your very own baggage.
