What should I pack when moving to Catamayo?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Catamayo to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Catamayo, you should pack lightweight clothing due to the warm climate, but also include a few sweaters or jackets for cooler evenings. Rain gear, such as a waterproof jacket and umbrella, is essential as the region experiences rainfall throughout the year. Comfortable walking shoes are a must, as well as sandals for warmer days. Don't forget to pack your essential documents, such as your passport, visa, driver's license, and any necessary medical records. It's also a good idea to bring a Spanish-English dictionary or phrasebook, as Spanish is the official language of Ecuador. Pack any prescription medications you need, along with a basic first aid kit. Sunscreen, insect repellent, and any preferred toiletries should also be included, as they may be more expensive or difficult to find in Ecuador. If you plan on cooking, consider packing some of your favorite spices or non-perishable food items, as they may not be available in Catamayo. Similarly, if you have favorite books or entertainment items, bring them along as well. Lastly, pack a power adapter for your electronics, as the outlets in Ecuador may be different from those in your home country," said another expat in Catamayo, Ecuador.
