Is it safe to drink tap water?

Is it safe to drink tap water? What about ice? What is the approximate price for a 6 pack of coca cola?

ice and tap water are perfectly safe. A Coke cost about $2.75EC ($1US) in the stores. Not usually sold in typical 6-pack, rather individually. Coke, Coke Zero, Sprite are all readily available around the island. Sometimes, Dr. Pepper, Mountain Dew and Pepsi are available also.

Bon jou konaman23,

Loosha blessed. High quality potable water available in town and excellent mineral springs all around the countryside.

Some springs are commercially bottled. Some - on the west coast road North of Soufriere, still in the rainforest, or on the road East out of Soufriere to Fond St. Jacques - are public mineral springs tap for re-filling bottles.

Fresh coconut water (naturally isotonic) is available everywhere.

Bless up! Paul

PS: Try a Haroun Mauby while you're here

Tap water us fine and I love the coconut water too, especially with a shot of bounty rum!

The water in St Lucia is full of microbes, which must be sterilised by adding a 33% measure of rum to it. After a few days your body starts to become immune to the sterilising effects of the rum, so you have to increase the strength to 50%.

Sunlover. Love it. Not sure the 50% dilution will be strong enough unless it is Denross. Xx
