7. Comfortable shoes that can get wet. Flip flops are big here. If you are going into the jungle, you need snake-proof boots. Do not mess around with anything less than good full-coverage boots. Don’t kid yourself: sneakers won’t do.
8. NO JEWELRY. It could get ripped off your body. Leave it at home. You’ll live. As in no whining. I don’t mean "you’ll live" as in you don’t want to die over your jewelry. Dying over your jewelry would be a rare to never event. You just don’t want to stand out.
