What To Bring

You should note that the weather is usually very cold most of the year, both during the day and at night, ranging from 41 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit. This is why it is important to bring a good waterproof coat and wool pants. In the islands, you can acquire the traditional chullos: Andean wool hats woven by hand with bright colors and designs.

Be aware that there are no food stores on the islands, so you should bring a bottle of water and some kind of snack with you to calm your hunger. For the same reason, it is good to bring personal hygiene items as well. Also, remember to bring extra batteries for your photo and video camera. Finally, if you decide to stay with a local family for the night, it is a good gesture of appreciation to bring them a gift such as school supplies or perishable food.
