Some Local Conversation

We live right on the main road along La Ropa near the dolphins.

The bus people do spend money on the beach, and regularly rent the tables, chairs and umbrellas that are made available by the city. We have been known to rent them too.

We generally enjoy watching many of them see and play in the ocean for the first time. It's a great opportunity to make the next generation more aware of the environment.

Aren't beaches in Mexico public, not private? If so, the attempt should be made to make the beach accessible in a way that causes as little damage to the area as possible.

The buses don't appear to damage the new, concrete road that runs from town to the dolphins. From there, the asphalt is in bad condition, possibly/probably due to the buses, but what about construction equipment and RV's?

We like several ideas. Continue to use the dirt lot behind La Ceiba Condos as long as it is available, but require the buses to turn off their engines and generators while parked.

Another thought is to provide the bus people with information about the La Ropa combis and taxi's and encourage them to use them, while keeping the buses in town.

Do even more with public education about why leaving trash on the beach is a bad idea, harming the marine life, and provide trash cans that get emptied.

Destroying wetlands for any reason is a bad idea. "Pave paradise, put up a parking lot."
