RE: Is it safe to drink tap water in Costa Rica?

I am going to be living in the Central Valley. Is there a place that is/isn’t safe in Costa Rica? What is the quality of the water overall?

Other than in very rural areas, water is generally safe to drink in CR.  There have been some issues with arsenic in the water near Bagaces.  We regularly order tap water in restaurants in lieu of the overpriced bottled water throughout CR.  At home we use a Pur Water filter in a container in the fridge – we find that the filtered water tastes better due to minerals in the water.
