How should I dress during an expedition?

Expedition participants are required to adhere as closely as possible to country-specific dress codes in order to not offend the villagers, who typically follow a more conservative dress standard. Nearly all villages require long pants or a skirt for women. Shorts are acceptable for tourist areas, but keep in mind that they do brand you as a tourist. Tank tops are allowed only if the local women are wearing them.

We recommend that participants traveling to Guatemala bring quick-drying/Dri-FIT clothing, which is comfortable to wear in the warm, humid climate and dries more quickly than cotton.
