You will be traveling in the Amazon and rain is always a possibility. Three items of luggage are suggested – one larger duffle bag/ that will carry everything and then a smaller backpack to carry your personal belongings, water, camera, etc.
You can insure that your clothing does not get wet on the trip to the Amazon by bringing a waterproof bag, and/or by packing all of your things inside plastic/dry bags (generally larger plastic bags work best) and then placing everything inside your luggage. Your luggage will always be well cared for on the trip in but this provides extra insurance in case of a rainstorm while in the canoe or during the activities.Packing List
