bad water in The Greandines?

Jump to last reply

Hello. My wife and I are planning a brief vacation to the Raffles Resort, Canouan Island. Recently, an acquaintance who claims to have some medical knowledge told us that the water in the Grenadines is unsafe. (The person did not explicitly cite Canouan Island as having unsafe water.) This person suggested we not drink any tap water, avoid fruits unless they are peeled, etc. Has anyone who visited Canouan had any problem with the water? Is it safe to eat salads, fruits that are not peeled, etc.? Do we need to bring some of the antibiotic Cipro, just in case?

We would be most grateful to get information from any of you about this issue and to hear any suggestions you might have.

Thank you.
