You must be on top.
Houses at lower elevations on the Caracol Peninsula have had water since 7 a.m. today, Sunday, Sept 23.
It usually takes 8 or 9 bourse for the houses on top to get water after those tinacos lower down start getting filled by gravity.
Check your valve at the meter or street.  Other friends and neighbors who thought there was no street water found someone had closed their water valve at the meter.
Sad, but true.

We had water for a very short time period on Sunday. Yesterday, my tinaco was empty; and, I had used very litle water. I'm beginning to question the chance of a neighbor using my tinaco water. I found my hose, which is attached to the faucet that comes from the tinaco in front yard, hanging on the other side of my lower yard wall.There was no reason for the hose to be in that position?? ...just sayin ... ??? And...yes I've paid my CEA bill for the tiny amount of water I get. :?:?:?:?

Water is on again now (Wed 9/26/18 morning) on the Caracol Pen, though if your house is on top it may still take a few hours to get to you.
Hope your tinaco gets topped up today...

Good news!


That will allow paying customers tinacos to fill faster.

We are coming down next week, and staying at a place on the caracol that does not have a tinaco.  How often is the water off up there these days?  We've been there before when we had about 3 days without, and managed, but wondered if we need to make alternative plans for showering.

Meaning every 2-3 days there will be water, or that it will be off for the entire time we are there?

there is no schedule. It could be off 2-3 days, sometimes longer. The recent couple months, if was off from Friday to Monday, then On most of the week. This weekend it was on and was turned off yesterday afternoon. (of course it went off when I was in the shower.:?)
So, Who knows. It would be nice to have a schedule so people could plan on their water usage , but such is life here.

To us, it seems like Caracol water is only on twice a week during the day and then it is in the morning. The other couple of times it is on at night enough to fill our tinaco. But now that I said that, there will be a change :)

Thanks so much for the replies. Hope you got the soap off, DocD!  


Doesn't sound a lot different than the experience we had last time we were there. The house we are staying at doesn't have a tinnaco...we'll be able to handle the flushing with carried water, but is there a place nearby (maybe a hotel or something) that would let us shower if need be?

Pattib, a couple of suggestions for you. 


since you have been there before, know there’s a possibility of being without water for 3 days or more and you are expressing current concerns, why don’t you convince the owner to install a tinaco? 
Only a few hundred dollars and a one day plumbing job.  Easy peasy.  It could be done before you come down.


OR rent a house that already has a tinaco.  Very few houses on the Caracol don’t have tinacos.  In fact, I know several who now have 3 tinacos since the official rationing started this summer.


Good luck and have a safe trip down.

We are fortunate to have free accommodations when we visit.  The owners lined someone up to install a tinaco.  Hopefully it will be installed by the time we get there.  Want to have plan B, just in case.
