Rainjackets or ponchos for rain forest?

I am traveling to Colombia where it is raining and in the 80's. What's the best poncho or rain jacket for these conditions?

Hi @bjames1617 - Thanks for reaching out. The rainforests of Colombia are incredible - it's great to hear you have a trip planned!

To stay comfortable in that wet/warm weather, you will want something that is breathable and has some ventilation options. Because you are planning to use this while hiking, we suggest using a rain jacket rather than a poncho because it will give you more mobility while out on the trails. We recommend looking at the following options:
