The Beach Cleanup Network now includes 11 communities who come together every month, with the help of 500 citizens, to not only clean up the beaches, but also to generate environmental awareness and create a better tourism destination.
Sayulita, the hippie chic town also known as the Surf Capital of the Riviera Nayarit, will join the Beach Cleanup Network for its ninth event, which will take place on Valentine’s Day this Saturday, February 14th.
Starting at 9am, the communities of Sayulita, Nuevo Vallarta, Bucerías, Platanitos, Isla de Mexcaltitán and Punta de Mita await anyone who wants to join in and lend a hand in this praiseworthy endeavor.
The beaches of Huanacaxtle, San Pancho, Rincón de Guayabitos, La Peñita de Jaltemba and Los Ayala will begin their own cleanup around 5pm. Exact times may vary depending on the location.
The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau calls upon the community at large to not throw trash in the streets, rivers, streambeds or beaches so as to avoid its reaching the sea. This simple act will contribute to the survival of species crucial to the environment such as the sea turtle, among others.
