- El Anclote at Punta de Mita will be cleaned up by the staff of one of Mexico’s most exclusive hotels; on this occasion wholesaler TUI will join in the cleanup at Bucerías; there will be another cleanup at Islas Marietas to kick off the summer season.
The 14th edition of the Riviera Nayarit Beach Cleanup (RLP by its acronym in Spanish) is set to take place this Saturday, July 11th, with the support of the staff from The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort, who will be in charge of Playa El Anclote in Punta de Mita. There will be approximately 20 people participating from this very exclusive hotel.
‘We’re very pleased by everything we’ve accomplished this year,” commented Marc Murphy, Managing Director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau. “Different groups, businesses and hotels have been constantly joining in this cleanup movement. We hope even more entities will join in because this Destination has hundreds of kilometers of beaches.”
In other cleanup news, TUI—the wholesaler that brings flights from London and Manchester into the region—will join the Bucerías cleanup effort on a one-time basis as part of the social responsibility program it has with it’s different target destinations.
This cleanup coincides with the start of summer vacation, so there will be an additional event at the Islas Marietas next Monday. As was previously announced, this particular cleanup will only be done before and after the busiest tourist seasons.
To all the visitors of the Riviera Nayarit’s beaches, we’d like to remind them that it’s in everyone’s best interest to keep the beaches clean as well as avoid bonfires or riding horses on the sand. We also ask guests to respect the region’s flora and fauna, especially the sea turtles, which have already begun to arrive for nesting season.
