Don't go with sandals into the grass or wilderness
Many visitors like to hike in the national parks and wilderness areas. Hikers should be adequately prepared for their trips. Always carry plenty of water, even on short trips. In 1993, two German hikers going for a short 90-minute hike in Parque Nacional Barra Honda got lost and died of heat prostration and thirst. Hikers have been known to get lost in rainforests. Carry maps and extra food, and let someone know where you are going to narrow the search in the event of an emergency. Be aware of snakes specially at night. Don't go with sandals into the grass or wilderness.
