  • The water at the hotels is purified and safe to drink. The water you want to stay away from is the anything from a "local" place...Cancun is a "strip" one road up and down a 7 mile island, that is about 3/4 of a mile wide. There is shopping ALL over, and a gorgeous "open air" mall...in the food court at the mall, there are doors to the outside, that are RIGHT on the beach!!!! But yes, bottled water is readily available. Being in Cancun isn't much different than being in the US...you still have all you will need right at your fingertips. Have fun! I have been a few times, and love it every time!

  • I am so jealous. Me and my DH went back in '95 when we were married for one year. I loved it. I want to go again. You'll find bottled water everywhere. Have fun.
