Boots on the ground

Be smart

Whenever you’re travelling, keep your valuables in your hotel room safe!

Drinking Water

Don’t worry, water bottle are provided by your resort. Just ask at the bar or restaurant. And why not add some electrolyte powder while you're at it? Hydration is key!


It’s more convenient to bring American money than Canadian. Either exchange it at the airport on your way or at a currency exchange in your city (for best rates).

How to move

  • Try the guagua: These local minibuses are fast, reliable and accessible.
  • Motoconcho or motorcycle taxis are a cheaper alternative to taxis if you’re comfortable with riding on a motorbike. Recognize the drivers by their yellow vest!
