Actions such as avoiding buying plastic products, using your own re-usable bottles, straws or bags, not throwing waste and debris in the streets, never forget to collect your trash and the one you see in the beaches … these are things that for many could be obvious, but that in Bocas del Toro it is necessary to remember and put in the presence of all.

A sea where you can surf some of the best waves of the continent and surrounded by people from all over the world. People that like you, come to enjoy this piece of paradise on earth. Therefore it is everyone’s responsibility to keep it and take care of it as if it were our home, and if it is already … then there is no excuse!
