Tap water safety in Argentina

In general, the water in large urban areas is potable and safe to drink in Argentina. So go ahead, fill up your bottle with tap water – you'll be doing our precious blue planet a favor!

However, in rural areas within Argentina, the water may be safe to drink. This means, the water is chlorinated and locals drink it from the tap with no problems. However, some strains of E. coli which you may not have immunity for, could be present in small concentrations causing diarrhea. Bottled water is recommended for the first few weeks while your body develops immunity.
