What camera to take and dresses to pack. Homestay questions.

Jump to last reply

We are going to Spanish school in Panajachel (Dad, Mom, 14 yr old boy, 12 yr old boy). We will be doing a homestay.

What kind of camera should we bring? We have a tiny Nikon point and shoot. Should we bring more than one?

I wear primarily dresses (jumpers) for comfort. Should they be longer than knee-length? Am I better off with shorts/pants? Do I need headcovering for the churches?

Any suggestions for a gift for a homestay? Should we request a change after a week to have a more well-rounded experience or stay with one family for the two weeks? Can we count on a warmish shower daily?

We are budget travelers, campers really. Should we bring a small water purifier or will it be unnecessary with a homestay? Should we bring sheets/towels/TP?

Thanks!!!
