Last week, Costa Rica once again made headlines because of its incredible people. We refer, specifically, to those who work every day to maintain their beaches, parks, and all the biodiversity that surrounds this country. In short, it was a great example of ecological sustainability.

Volunteers who helped to clean one of the chosen beaches

Through the Costa Rican Surf Association (Acos), the “Mega Cleaning of Beaches” at the national level was held specifically on December 5th, volunteers’ day. That was why a large number of people joined and enjoyed giving back to the beautiful beaches of our country.

Vanessa Hollan, as one of the organizers this year, in coordination with “Acos”, said: “I am very happy about this. My first year working not only in cleaning but also in the organization and search for sponsors within Dominical”. (venue of the event)

Among the sponsors who decided to say “present” in the cleaning of beaches, were Coldwell Banker, Mono Congo, Patrons, Ecoferia and, of course, The Costa Rica News. They all helped to collect the waste, take photos, and bringing food and drinks for the activity.

Other beaches such as Jacó, Hermosa, Azul, Guacalillo, Puntarenas, Pavones, Cieneguita, Tamarindo were also pampered by these Ticos and their sponsors. Definitely, an initiative focused on educating more citizens and motivating them to maintain cleanliness on the Costa Rican beaches.
