The monthly beach cleanup of the destination’s beach communities will take place on Saturday, August 9th, with the full support of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB).
Platanitos and the Playa Platanitos Ecológico association will join Punta de Mita, Bucerías and La Peñita de Jaltemba in maintaining the beaches to benefit all of the people of Nayarit.
The Riviera Nayarit CVB provides the groups integrated by this civil society with the necessary cleaning materials like gloves, bags, t-shirts and water.
First contact has also been made with the San Pancho and Sayulita communities, and collaboration has begun with Guayabitos and San Blas; all have responded positively to the invitation to become part of the group. The objective is for all the picturesque towns of the Riviera Nayarit to be a part of this movement.
