Today we visited several community projects in the surroundings of La Palma Village. Once we reached Playa Blanca Beach several buses were available to take our guests in different directions. Some went to learn about gold panning and artisanal sugar mill production, others went to the cacao and heart of palm production area, and others visited the trails of Danta Lodge for a nature walk.

At noon, we all gathered together to enjoy a delicious lunch at the beach and a folkloric dance show. Then our visit was crowned by a lovely demonstration by a local sea turtle research station carrying out a sea turtle tagging operation.

It was a full day in which we enjoyed not only the beautiful natural environment surrounding this progressive community, but also learned a wonderful example of how conservation is exercised by the locals.
