Can You Drink the Water in Mexico? // Life in Puerto Vallarta Vlog

⇒Where did we eat?

We ate at one of the best health food restaurants in Puerto Vallarta, Barra Light. Barra Light is a great place to grab a salad, sandwich, and juice. Though, there portion sizes are pretty large so if you can eat three of those, you my friend are impressive. Greg always orders a medium salad, which is 98 pesos, and Hillary usually orders that tuna panini for around the same price.

⇒ Rant of the day?

Today we tackled a pretty popular topic: Can you drink the water in Mexico? You can watch the video for our full discussion, but essentially we always order a glass of water at a restaurants instead of getting a bottle of water. Whenever you order a glass of water you are still drinking filtered water, not tap water. We have never gotten sick drinking the “vasos de agua”. However, we suggest using your own judgement when choosing whether you want a glass of water or bottled water. While we have never been sick from the water, we’d hate for you to get sick because of our information!

It’s important to note that our opinions are based on our experiences in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and not other cities throughout the country. If you are visiting areas outside of Vallarta, I would do a little research outside of our blog.

 

Keep it Kinetic,

 

Greg and Hillary
