    This is our first trip to Central America and Costa Rica. We are staying in San Juan our first night, then heading to Rio Magnolia tomorrow. What is the situation with public drinking water in the city? o worries for a New Englander? Thanks, Korte

    Hi Korte, In general in the city it is safe to drink the water but being your first time in Central America you may be safer with bottled water which is readily available. See you tomorrow!
