    My internet searching has led me to believe that the tap water and ice in restaurants is safe to drink in Jamaica. Anyone heard otherwise?

      Hmmm not sure on that one. I would use the bottled stuff just to be safe.

        The water is safe to drink, especially at the resorts.

            Thanks, we wont be at a resort, but at a restaurant...I guess I am mostly worried about the ice. Maybe I will just email the restaurant.

              I def know most of the resorts use bottled water even for their ice. but since its a restaurant I would give them a call just to make sure. You dont want your guests to have stomach issues after a lovely wedding!

                Most of the resorts have their own water filtration plants... they are hidden but they all have them due to the amounts of water they use. So yes, you can drink the water at your resort... just not off the resort.

                  I've been to Jamaica several times and I have never had a problem with the water.

                    I've never had a problem with the water either.

                      JA has filtered water so you will be fine.
