Never had any ice/water problems on our numerous trips to PV. My wife is a bottled water drinker in PV, I am just the opposite. Been my experience what you mix with the ice/water that causes most of the "sickness". That said if it eases your mind stick with bottled water which is easily obtained.
Most places serve ice from purified water. It's said that PV has a good water, I know people who drink it right from the tap but... I always drink bottled water, even here at home in Canada. If you are uncertain about the ice, just ask. I really doubt you will have any problems.
after many trips (to mexico/jamaica) and my husband ALWAYS getting sick, we realized he was getting sick because of dehydration, too much soda/beer trying to stay away from the water. Now that we buy lots of water, drink what is offered at restaurants (including the ice) we have been fine ever since...
In the 9 times we have been in PV we never experienced any sickness from the water or ice. I realise some people get sick on occasion when traveling in a foriegn country and Mexico always get a bad rap on that issue. My wife is a big fan of frozen drinks so her ice consumption is rather large. If you do worry about sickness avoid the ice for your young ones and serve them bottled water,soda, juice. Eventhough we have never been sick in PV I always do take along Imodium just in case.
