What to pack?


Visitors are advised to bring light comfortable clothing, with fleece or woolen clothing for evenings. Bring something to change into at dusk – long sleeves and trousers help ward off mosquitoes. During the day you will need a hat, sunglasses and high factor sun cream. Modest dress is advisable for men and women, particularly in coastal areas. Footwear should be airy because of the heat; canvass trainers or sandals are ideal. Expensive and flashy jewelry is strongly discouraged.
