Is the tap water safe to drink in Panama?
The water quality in Panama City is good enough to drink and the water outside the city is also considered safe to drink. In case that you are not adapted to the local water quality, or to avoid any illness, we recommend drinking bottled water. Except in Panama City, we suggest brushing your teeth with bottled water. Try to order drinks without ice during your tours of Panama as ice is not always made from bottled or purified water. If you have any questions, just consult your guide any time.
