My first trip to Belize is coming up. Looking forward to 3 weeks in topical paradise. Should I pack my "Brita"?

Anything else I should bring? Not bring?

Any tips from more experienced travellers would be appreciated.

Thanks, Tim

I usually buy drinking water, some hotels have their own reverse osmosis systems...

I'd recommend reading through the board for general questions..

Tim....bottled water is sold in small bottles....litre bottles....half gallon ...gallon....and 5 gal bottles.

I don't think you need to bring the Brita.

The ice companies here use purified water to make ice....so don't ask the bartenders if the ice is OK to drink....LOL....they get asked that 50 times a night.

Most resorts and restaurants use bottled water for drinking and preparing food.

I don't think you will have a problem.

Enjoy!

Yeah, and keep your mouth shut in the shower...it annoys the neighbors, and you might swallow some of the delicious water!
