Trip Summary

If you enjoy doing something for our environment, this day will satisfy you as you work on the creation of artificial reefs at Playa Blanca. The labor requires mixing sand and concrete, pouring your efforts into molds that replicate the underwater homes of countless marine species. Your hands-on contribution plays a pivotal role in bolstering the area's marine biodiversity and ecological fortitude. These substantial structures, each weighing up to a ton, find their new home beneath the waves. After a morning of hard work,  you will have a chance to rest and cool off while you enjoy a delicious lunch. Afterwards, the group will board a shuttle to Playa Blanca where snorkeling equipment will be provided to explore the underwater concrete reefs made by previous groups of volunteers, already housing myriad of species that for a time disappeared, and thanks to these efforts have come back. Replenishment of habitat complexity, the creation of new substrates and the replacement of a socio-economic resource helps not only the sea creatures but also the community.
