If planning on taking a hiking tour it is recommended that you bring quick drying athletic clothing and secure sport sandals or water shoes and lots of water. The average temperature can reach 90° F (30 ° C) along the trails and it is extremely humid so we recommend at least 2 liters of water per person.
