We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for area schools or medical clinics in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.

Turtle Beach House B&B is located on Bluff Beach, Isla Colon, the local Bluff school is a 10 minute walk from us. There are 19 students ages 6-13 years old who attend the school where there is one teacher and 1 classroom. Resources are very limited, basic supplies like pencils and paper are a luxury for many of the children. The children are eager to learn and the lack of school supplies, not to mention water, decent toilets and playground equipment sometimes make this difficult.
With our neighbors Gary and Betsy at The Humming Bird B&B, we will be providing much needed supplies for the school.
