Additional stuff to leave behind

    • (MHL) I would recommend it. Latin American culture (that I've been in, anyway) puts a fair amount of emphasis on dressing nicely, and they don't wear shorts. Having a decent pair of pants would go a long way towards not looking like an obnoxious tourist. Well, for me, anyway. You'll stick out regardless.  :)

  • compass
  • firstaid kit
  • boot waterproofing stuff
  • knife / multitool???
