Everyone will tell you the same thing; DON'T DRINK THE WATER! If you're only going to be there for a few days, do you really want to spend it glued to the toilet? Naaaaah.

So, brush your teeth with bottled water. Rinse with bottled water, as well as your toothbrush. Do not sing in the shower (hum instead). Order your drinks 'sin hielo (pronounced sin yellow) which means no ice. Most hotels use purified water, but always double check.

Try to avoid salads as they will have been washed with the water as well and make sure your food is well cooked.
