Passport and Copies: Guests will need a valid passport and should bring
2 photocopies of the identification page of their passport. These copies
will be kept by Tours Trips Treks & Travel staff as a precautionary
measure in case of loss of the original passport.
Currency: Guests should bring at least U.S. $20 in cash to satisfy entry
and exit requirements. Tours Trips Treks & Travel suggests that
all other currency be brought in the form of traveler's checks.
Insurance Information: Guests and/or chaperones should bring all necessary
information pertaining to the group's travel insurance including: a
copy of the policy, claim forms, individual insurance cards, and phone
numbers of the provider in the U.S. and abroad. 4T offers international
health insurance coverage through Intermational Medical Group,
and has a wide variety of plans with coverage from 10 days to 3 years.
Please review our International Health Insurance
Plans to see which one is best for you.
Medication, Toiletries, Eye Wear and Mosquito Repellent: Guests should
bring sufficient prescription medication, toiletries, contact lenses
and solution, and mosquito repellent to last the duration of their stay.
Guests who wear contacts should be sure to bring their glasses as a
precautionary measure. These items may be unavailable or, if available,
may be considerably more expensive than if purchased in the U.S.
Guests should bring casual and comfortable summer clothing (shorts,
T-shirts, tank tops) that is appropriate for their selected excursions.
Guests should be aware that clothing might get dirty and/or wet during
excursions such as the Cascade Hike or White Water Rafting. Although
laundry service will be available, it wouldn't be a bad idea to bring
"old clothes" that can stand up to the wear and tear of such
activities. In case of chilly weather, guests should bring at least
one pair of long pants and one long sleeve shirt, windbreaker, or lightweight
jacket. In addition, guests should bring at least one "nice outfit"
for a special event, such as the Farewell Dinner. While traveling, it
is important to respect tradition (*don't forget the basics: socks,
underwear, and pajamas.)
Guests should bring at least one pair of shoes for the beach (sandals
or flip flops) and at least one pair of comfortable, rubber-soled shoes
that are appropriate for their selected excursions. As mentioned in
reference to clothing, shoes may get wet and/or dirty. Therefore, guests
shouldn't bring their best pair of tennis shoes or hiking boots for
Gear: Guests should bring a bathing suit, a beach towel, and a sun block
of at least #15 SPF, a hat, sunglasses, and personal water bottle.
Bag/Knapsack: Guests should bring a small bag to contain necessary items
(towel, sun block, water bottle, snacks, etc
) during full-day
Materials: Guests should bring a Spanish-English Dictionary, a blank
notebook, and writing implements to record new vocabulary and information
learned on various excursions. Guests should also feel free to bring
texts for educational or pleasure reading.
Bag/Suitcase: Guests should pack practically and appropriately for their
stay. As space is often an issue in transporting and lodging large groups,
guests should bring the smallest duffel bag/suitcase possible.
