DRINKABLE WATER - A MUST DO PURCHASE
Did you know that it is not really safe drinking tap water in Tulum? Well, it’s an important thing to know! Because of this, we would recommend you to always have drinkable water handy! That’s why it’s important to stock up on drinking water each time you go shopping.
Both supermarkets offer purified bottled water at a very low cost. Here we will recommend you the water delivery service that we use in order to stay hydrated during our adventures in Tulum:
They are Jungle Rainwater – The first time you get an order, you will pay for the water bottle’s plastic. The second time you will be just paying for the water, so it’s half of the price! Save the plastic to only pay for the water when you refill, which is about half of the price. Contact them and stay hydrated!
