Food Hygiene and Drinking Water in Brazil

Food and Water Hygiene:

Tap water in Brazil’s major towns and cities is fairly safe for drinking and cases of related problems for visitors are usually minimal. When traveling to remote regions and small towns, it is better to carry your own drinking water. Bottled water is sold cheaply in shops and supermarkets around the country.


Visitors should take care to avoid suffering from severe dehydration especially for those traveling with children. The humid and hot conditions in parts of the country especially the coastal areas can be detrimental to your health. Stay hydrated at all times by drinking lots of juices and water.

Food and contamination:
