The mission of "A grain of sand" is to gather the existing micro plastic garbage that bring the ocean streams that we may find on our path while we explore the certified Organo beach.
  • The Lighthouse 180° coastline and ocean viewpoint,

  • Hiking through part of the National Park Wetland wth caducifolia vegetation explanation.

  • Helping to clean the nature from the world plastic problem.

  • Resting and swimming in a Virgen, with crystal water certified beach.

The white sandy beaches tanned by the sun are most appreciated when they are clean. In Huatulco we have nine bays and thirty-six dream beaches, each one of them offers us different shades of water, as well as different textures of sand, surrounded by the typical vegetation of the south, caducifolious forest, organ pipe cactus, mangroves, prickly pear, mango trees, etc.  

We depart from the main bay of Santa Cruz in our transportation, and we will stop at the lighthouse along the scenic road. We continue until to reach the path that will lead us to this virgin beach, watching birds and a specific vegetation from the south of Mexico. Our guide will set the instruction, dynamics and provide us accessories needed for the activity. At the end of our "work" we will have the opportunity to refresh hydrate ourselves with water, sodas, and fresh season fruits to regain energy and to swim in the crystal and quiet water of this Virgen beach. The place is beautiful by itself, do not miss the opportunity to take some beautiful pictures near the recognition Label given to us by the International Clean Beaches committee, Green Globe and Earth Check.
