When I went to Venezuela, I explored the Amazon rainforest. It’s very very humid and very wet all of the time. I strongly suggest that you pack a box of zip lock bags to store your clothes in. They were a lifesaver for me because in the jungle you really have to limit how much baggage you carry. I organized a shirt, shorts and 2 pairs of panties in one zip-lock, so that I could have one fresh change of clothes for each day. The bags also help to store your dirty humid clothes at the end of the day, so the rest of your clothes won’t get wet and smelly.
