I just came back from visiting Canaima National Park and it's absolutely amazing. You should bring:

-Hiking shoes or boots (indispensable)

-Water shoes or sandals (No flip-flops or velcro-only sandals! these will come off if swimming in streams and rivers)

-Rain poncho (indispensable)

-At least one long sleeved shirt (nylon 'traveling'/hiking shirts that dry out fast will work great on the hiking trips).

-At least one long pair of hiking pants (best are those that convert to shorts).

-Shorts, t-shirts

-Hat (indispensable)

-High factor sunscreen

-Mosquito repellent

-Camera and plenty of film. Better yet, waterproof or plastic protected cameras as you will walk through or near waterfalls, rivers, streams and ponds.

**Overall, it's warm in the day and slightly cool at night. People think that because it's a tropical country they will be fine in shorts and tank tops. I recommend instead that when you go in excursions you wear your swimsuit under a long sleeve shirt and long hiking pants and you will be perfectly protected from the elements.

Have a great trip!
