Matador’s own Andy Hayes has launched another website, and this one is so simple and brilliant that I’m envious I didn’t think of it myself.
“Can I Drink the Water?” tells travelers, well, whether they can safely drink the water in any of the world’s “major countries and territories.”
Choose the country you intend to visit from a drop-down menu, and the site tells you the state of water potability in said country.
Andy says that he came up with the answer for each country by reading “official government resources, travel reports, and other documentation.”
I just checked Can I Drink the Water’s answer for Belize, which is where I’ll be headed in a few weeks to kick off a partnership between the country’s tourism board and MatadorU, and good news– I CAN drink the water.
