Yes, garbage litters almost the entire island's shoreline. Plastic bags partially buried in the sand, styrofoam floating in the surf, a ring of plastic bottles and beer cans circling the island, as well as some broken glass. But hey, the water's still clear and beautiful. A great swim!
We here at the Potsusaker Post would like keep our readers from being mislead. The previous post could lead some readers to assume that Isla Grande is place of picturesque beauty or "pristine tropical paradise" unaffected by human activity. The Post strives to be completely forthcoming: the garbage is also picturesque.
All the trash was sorta strange because we saw five young boys driving a boat around picking up garbage bags from restaurants and residents. You have to wonder where it all comes from? The residents? The tourists? Colon? Mexico City? Houston? Miami?
