The lodge will provide rain ponchos and the lodge will provide rubber boots for hiking in the jungle. However, if your foot size is either very small (less than a women’s size 5 US or European size 34) or very large (greater than a men’s size 12 US or European size 47) please be sure to note this on your Passenger Information Form so we can plan accordingly. It is very difficult to find large men’s sizes in Ecuador and so if that is your requirement you may need to bring your own rubber boots with you to Ecuador. We will let you know.
