Jump to last reply

Hi i am going on a guided tour to south america but have no idea who to ask or where to look for some questions as i dont know who has been to s.america. i've been wanting to do this for a long time now prob for 5yrs and in under a month i will be there!!!!! i have all my flights and all my shots and my visa but what i have no idea in what to do is my packing.
i will be travelling through ecuador,peru,bolivia,venezuela and brazil (where i will stay for the carnivale!). I just wanted to know what whether will i expect? i will be going thru dec-march and i have read that it is the wet season in some regions but hot in others....so this is making it difficult for me to pack clothes and what toiletries do i pack? and as am a female do i take my own products to use when in "need". I am just lost and all i have is a back pack and a sleeping bag so far. please help and give me any ideas like do i take my own toilet paper to s.america?????????
