 5 ways you can protect these Natural Areas & Beaches during your stay:

1. Don’t leave garbage behind. Please bring any non-organic trash to your hotel or house. Every establishment has the correct container for your trash and recycling.

2. Don’t take shells, take plastic! The rivers bring tons of plastic from the cities every rainy season to our beaches. Please help pick up some pieces and take them back to your hotel for disposal. You may find cloth bags for the plastic at some of the beach accesses.

3. Donate. Our town has a consistent program of activities to clean and protect the natural beauty of the area, you can support these community efforts with your contribution.

4. Don’t drive on the beach. It is not allowed to drive cars or motorcycles on the beach.

5. Don’t make a bonfire. It is dangerous for the animals and the burning wood can start a fire during the dry season.
