Vaccinations

You do not need any vaccine to enter the country. However, there are some vaccines that are recommended, such as cholera, hepatitis A, tetanus, Typhoid Fever and Yellow. Many of them are recommended if you are going to spend time in the jungle. Malaria is common in the Amazon. Visit your doctor six weeks in advance of the trip because some vaccines take a while to take effect.

Insurance

You are advised to take a travel insurance before leaving home. Sometimes hospitals and clinics demanding the payment in cash, keep your receipts for then-reimbursement. Thinking of doing adventure sports such as canoeing, motocross, paragliding, among others, ask whether the insurance covers those activities.
