The only document required is a tourist passport. Two copies of your passport picture page are required in reconfirming flights and as entrance requirement for the Reserve. No visa is required. No vaccination certificate is required. In the 19 years that Amazonia Expeditions has worked in the region they have not yet had a traveler become sick with a tropical disease. There is malaria in the Reserve but we attempt to avoid regions at risk. The taking of malarial prophyllaxis is at your discretion. More details on travel immunization are available from Drs. Osgood and Thompson.
Clothes for rainforest
Long and short pants; long sleeved shirts and tee shirts; rain gear; hat with brim; swim suit; sneakers and hiking shoes (jungle rubber boots in various sizes are provided on site), reef walkers or water moccasins can be helpful for canoe excursions. Daytime high temperatures are 80-88 F. Nighttime can get down to 60 F.
Sun block (close to the equator there is less atmospheric protection from UV); insect repellent (taking garlic and vitamin B1 helps); canteen or water bottle; flashlight with spare batteries; personal first aid kit; personal toiletries; daypack or small backpack.
Binoculars; elementary school items to donate; camera (most underestimate the amount of film to bring); video (there is a generator for recharging batteries).
Needed for some meals (2-3 meals in airports), tips, and optional purchases such as souvenirs. US currency is good for all of that, but make sure your bills are in virtually new or mint condition.
