drinking water safety

Do we need to be concerned about the drinking water?

Should we be only be drinking bottled water or is the tap generally fine?

We will be staying at Balcones

You should always drink bottled water in the DR. Readily available in supermarkets, colmados etc. if you need to buy it. But any hotel will always offer bolted water to drink

Don't drink tap water anywhere in this country, don't brush your teeth with tap water.

ONLY bottled water and it is everywhere and cheap if you need to buy it. All hotels will provide it.

Any food or ice you encounter in restaurants, bars etc are prepared with purified water so no worries there.

Have a great trip
