Mira la basura en esa playa. Quien quiere banarse en ese arrabal.
Que verguenza.
Look at all that trash; who wants to swim in the trash.
The DR wants the tourist to come and get the money but does not want to invest in keeping the place clean.
Politur should get involved in conjunction with environmental agencies to stop the illegal sale of gasoline and diesel in the touristic areas Juan dolio …los bancos de arena and boca chica.
Corrupted officials are ruining the water near the shore allowing oil spill and fuel spills thus contaminating the beach…..
What a shame.
