- hat
- Sunglasses
- Windbreaker jacket or duvet jacket

From May to August the temperature is around 15° during the day. However, be prepared because as soon as the sun disappears temperatures will drop to around 5°c. So, remember to never underestimate the South American weather and bring appropriate garments!
