Bath towels?

Do I need to pack some or will they be available for ‘rent at shower facilities? I’m not on any charter service.

You can generally rent them at shower venues but I would pack one just in case. I will bring one to the shower and if they towels to rent I will usually rent one to keep mine as fresh as possible.

Not all shower facilities have towels to rent so buy yourself a microfiber towel. Give it a couple of shakes and it’s almost dry. Fluffy cotton towels will not dry very well in the humidity and start to smell funky towards the end of the week. And the extra cost to rent one is not bad considering the alternative is having to pack a wet towel.

+1 on the microfiber towel.
REI has a variety of sizes; the extra large is about $23 if memory serves.
