Default DON'T FORGET...I did !!!!

Another post reminded me of something.........everyone talks about NOT drinking the water on various islands....and most think NO WAY...I WOULDN'T.......BUT when we where in Cozumel last year at Carlo's & Charlies, I never thought twice about having a few margaritas...hmmmm ICE made from WATER....well we left there at 10:00PM and by 2:00 AM I was WIDE awake and on my way to the bathroom...stomach rollin' on the river..........WOW....but it was over in a short time.....BUT I never would have thought about it, but from now on I will. LIVE & LEARN. I felt like such a dope!!!!

Actually the water in Cozumel is quite safe and no reported problems. The water that C&C uses is clean water and this is not where your got your problem from. It could have been any number of places or things. The advice of not drinking local water still is a good idea in most places however.

Joie,

Are you sure it wasn't the FEW margaritas? Thanks for the reminder to not drink the water or beverages with ice..no one wants to put a damper on the fun by having a cool drink!!

Instead of buying the Evian water from the ship at about $3.00 per bottle, bring a bottle or sports bottle from home and fill it up in your cabin or at the Lido Grill....Great water no cost!!!

May not have been the water but too many drinks?

If you are in Mexico it is a good idea to stay away from the water....including ice, vegetables rinsed in the water, etc....not just the water....

Most bars in cozumel use purifyed water. The cruise ship will usually tell you were it is safe.

When in Mexico (so far only on a cruise) I don't eat or drink excpet for beer. I will have that because its gone through such a process that I dont think there's anything left in there but alcohol

Almost every tourist restaurant/bar in Mexico buys and uses ice made from purified water. And they also have filtered water. We eat and drink at many restaurants every trip and have been to Mexico maybe 10 times.Neither of us has ever gotten sick.

I made a similar mistake in Grand Cayman - bought a fountain pop - didn't even think about it until 5 hours later! Stomach pains like crazy - couldn't eat for 2 days!
