Drinking Water in Brazil
It is recommended that you drink only bottled water during your time in Brazil and South America. Tapwater in Brazil may be ok to drink for locals in some areas, although foreign visitors may not be accustomed to the bacteria it contains. It is best not to risk upsetting your stomach for the sake of buying treated water which is readily available all over Brazil. Most hotels, restaurants and bars use ice that is made from treated water, but please check if you are not sure.
