Packing List- South America
Packing List- South America Reviews
Packing list Jun 26, 2011
I never thought much about this, but was recently talking with several friends that take regular vacations and asked if they used a packing list and several said they didn't (including me).
That had me thinking, it might depend on if you're a list person or if you just organize your self some other way...

I've been to South America three times so far and what you need varies region by region, but I'm going to try and be as general as possible.
A structured backpack or sturdy luggage
First Aid Kit
Pepto Bismol or Imodium
Passport (Copies of Passort)
State ID. (Driver's License, Permit, etc.)
Warm jacket or wool sweater
Raincoat (Gore-Tex® is both waterproof and breathable)
Sturdy shoes or hiking boots
Flip-flops or waterproof sandals for hostel showers
Outfit for going out (nightlife)
Nicer pair of shoes
Depends what season you're visiting, but South America's climate varies country to country, it can be humid so light clothing, and long pants are recommended to protect against mosquitos.
Tank tops or Jersey style tops
Running/Hiking/etc. dry-fit clothes
Women (above applies as well)
Wrinkle-free skirts and/or dresses
Tampons, Pads, Midol
Odds & Ends
Converter (to be able to use American appliances)
Digital Camera (if not bring several rolls of film)
Ipod or CD Player
Books or magazines
Energy or Granola Bars
