Water That Will Cost You An Arm And A Leg

These bottles were standing conspicuously over the refrigerator located in the bathroom of our room. I expect that resorts such as the El Conquistador will be a bit on the expensive side, but $7.00 for a bottle of water? You would really have to be desperately thirsty to twist off the caps of one of these, given that bottled water can be purchased for much less at any of the shops at the resort.

This is what we did when we were faced with this dilemma in a Miami hotel. I drank the water, put the do not disturb sign on the door when I went out, bought an identical bottle for like a buck and a half or so at the local deli and replaced the one I just drank. Oh yes I was very thirsty and had to have water, but didn't want to pay the stupid $7 either.

I like the little life jackets that your bottles of water are wearing.

Good way to get around that, Skepfeeds.
