RE: Is it safe to drink tap water in Costa Rica?
Other than in very rural areas, water is generally safe to drink in CR. Â There have been some issues with arsenic in the water near Bagaces. Â We regularly order tap water in restaurants in lieu of the overpriced bottled water throughout CR. Â 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.
