Food, water and drinks safe in Cozumel?

Recommended Posts

It has been a while since I have been to Cozumel, but in the past I was always warned to stay away from fresh fruits and anything other than bottled water. I have not been reading any posts here that voice any concerns, so I presume that it is now safe and not anything to be worried about? Considering one of the all inclusive for a day excursion and want to make sure I am careful if I need to be, so any thoughts here would be appreciated.

If you are at one of the AIs or any beach club, water, ice, food safe. Just drink bottle water. But ice ice made from filtered water and food is washed in filtered water.

Tourism is the one and only industry for the island of Cozumel.  That means that they are very very careful not to make visitors sick or unhappy.  One bad review on internet is catastrophic to them.  So, yes, everything is washed in filtered water.  I wouldn't buy raw fruits and veggies at stores, as they may not be cleaned yet.  Other than that, Cozumel is very safe.

How about the beach bars on the east side.  Also safe?


Well, they have to bring everything over in coolers, ice and food, and run them with a generator since there is no electricity.  Personally, I try to always buy sodas or beer in a bottle or can, just to make sure.
