Sayulita, the hippie chic town also known as the Surf Capital of the Riviera Nayarit, has joined the Beach Cleanup Network for its ninth event, which will take place on Valentine’s Day this Saturday, February 14th.
There are now 11 communities receiving the more than 500 citizens that work together on the second Saturday of every month to not only clean up the beaches, but also to generate environmental awareness and create a better tourism destination.
Starting at 9 a.m. 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, Guayabitos, La Peñita de Jaltemba and Los Ayala will begin their own cleanup around 5 p.m. 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.
