If going all-inclusive, bottled water is included.

Happy travels.

Everything in moderation is a good way to avoid getting sick. All veggies, etc are washed in filtered water so no need to worry about that. Drink lots of water inbetween alcoholic beverages, wear lots of sunscreen and remember that coconut milk is a laxitive. And above all, ENJOY your vacation.

correct, OBXBum,

and both are distributed/bottled here in the DR, under the licenses of Coke/Pepsi etc.

our bottled waters are as safe as bottled water can be,

and as others stated above, Drink a lot of Water to stay hydrated, as dehydration is the start of symptoms bothering our Bodies, leading to many different unpleasant outcomes, often blamed on "dirty water" "food poisoning" and such.

happy travels

Yup to all the great advice. Also do not swallow water showering and brush teeth with bottled water.

I am not so sure the water is bad as much as it is the organisms in the water that a non- resident's body is not adapted to.
