PackingSince this is a sailing trip we highly recommend you take a small back pack with your personal belongings that you want on the trip (we’ll give you a list of recommended items). The rest may be stowed in a bodega on the boat until final destination, or you may have it with you in your room, depends on the captain, either way you have more space and the boat stays tidier if you carry a day pack with your things for the week.
When packing your bag that is going to be stowed away we recommend you first pack all of your belongings in a large plastic garbage bag and then into your backpack, you can buy a single garbage bag at the small corner shops. This is a precaution just in case bilge water enters or it rains while transporting the bags, your belongings will stay dry and safe!
Payment and Changing MoneyWhen organizing payment it’s a good idea to leave time to withdraw cash before the trip. You may find some ATMs have daily limits to how much you can take out or your card may have a limit.
For passengers departing from Colombia, you will need to take US dollars and should allow time to withdraw money to exchange. You may do so in our office or at a casa de cambio. Do not change dollars with strangers in the street, they will steal your money!!!
