WHAT TO PACK

Keep it light and simple. You’ll spend most of your time in yoga gear! But of course you’ll want to be prepared for the jungle and the beach as well. Here’s our recommended packing list. Keep in mind the weather here is hot and humid, and mold is not uncommon. Also, when it rains…it POURS! Items may take some time to dry so try to leave anything at home that is extremely precious.
