Eco Tourism in Portobelo, Panama
An example of Positive Travelling
We wish to share a story with you, a story about Eco tourism in Panama…
Gaston is argentinian, he is 26, he is travelling in the Americas with a bike, a light backpack and a mission: “Helping to promote good enviromental habits”.
He sailed to Portobelo from Colombia and few hours after the anchoring, while visiting the forts and the town of Portobelo he felt attracted by the magic of this small caribbean town.
He decided to stay for a couple of weeks to discover the nature in the area and was compelled to begin an eco project collecting trash and the creation of eco-signals to create awareness.
Panamore decided to participate to this “creative action”, bringing trahs bags, gloves, boots and coloured paints.
Meanwhile Gaston is discovering the beaches,the rivers and others treasures of Portobelo, he is also spending time to speak with kids about enviroment and eco-sustainability, with a smile he says: “a better future, is in our hands…”
Last 20 march, during the celebration of Portobelo foundation, we organized an Eco-Action collecting trash from a river, painting signals and also creating a trash …. recycling and reusing an old washing machine.
Soon,Gaston will leave Portobelo, he has a mission to accomplish, pedaling the Americas, promoting eco sustainabiliy with creativity…
Thank you for sharing your eco ideas with us !!!
We hope you great adventures
