Is the Water Safe to Drink?
Drink bottled water, or water that has been boiled or treated. Also make sure to only drink ice made from bottled water, and avoid drinking from fountains. Ask to make sure any juice you drink wasn’t made with tap water. It’s possible to get diarrhea from contaminated water, so carry anti-diarrheal medicine with you during your travels.
Water and food can become contaminated and spread hepatitis A and typhoid. Travelers should get these vaccinations before entering Central America.
