Brazil’s Pantanal can be humid, and while it’s great that the air conditioning at the Araras Ecolodge works so well you’re always cool, sometimes that means your glasses and camera lens can fog up. While you’re getting dressed in the morning, place your glasses and camera outside your room so that they adjust to the temperature change. That way, they’ll be fog-free when you are ready to snap the morning’s first photo.

Keeping your camera and glasses is also important on our Amazon River cruise, so IE’s Expedition Leaders suggest storing your camera in your cabin’s bathroom and keeping the door shut, keeping the air conditioning out.
