According to WHO data, 98% of Brazil cities/towns and rural areas have access to improved water sources, that are available when needed.
While in Belém you should not drink tap water, though you can use water from the tap to wash vegetables, brush your teeth, etc. As Belém is located approximately 100 mi south of the equator, the sun is particularly strong year-round, so fair-skinned travelers should apply sunscreen on a daily basis. Additionally, be sure to apply mosquito repellent when going out after sunset. Malaria is not a major concern in Belém, but if you are traveling to remote areas of Pará during the rainy season you should, after consulting with your doctor, consider taking malaria pills. The CDC recommends getting a Yellow Fever vaccine for travel in Pará and many other parts of Brazil. You can learn more about recommended vaccinations for Brazil on the CDC website .
