Travel advice

I'm going to Central America (Belize, Honduras) for 2 months in a couple weeks and I could use advice about anything and everything. It is going to be the rainy season, and very humid. I want to be prepared but have not gone on a long trip like this before. Any advice about MUST TAKES, or any kind of advice for a trip like this.
I have a Cannon Rebel XTi, and a 150 gig portable hard drive. Can I safely take my hard drive through the airport? Do I need to avoid the scanners, should I pack it in my luggage or take it carry on with my Camera?
I know I will need to wrap my camera for rain and weather but i don't know if there is a technique for this? The last thing I want to do is ruin my Camera.

Your portable hard drive will be safe going through the scanners.

But you should take it on board as cabin luggage.

This article Should help. It is a what worked and what didn't article from Michael Richman on Luminous Landscape. It details precortions taken on a recent trip to the Amazon and sounds close to what you will encounter.

A pelican case might be in order to keep everything safe while you aren't using it.
