    Good Morning We are planning a trip to one of the Rain Forest areas where we would like to do forest walking and beach swimming This hotel is obviously a very good one but we are extremely worried about the constant reports of rubbish on the beach Please advise if this is only washed in at night or does it happen throughout the day also? A business colleague has advised that there is an enormous Shanty Town on stilts nearby and that each hut has holes in the floor where they throw all their rubbish, household waste and one hole in the floor, is even a toilet! He says that absolutely everything is thrown or dropped down the holes into the waters beneath He has advised that the tides can carry the waste in any direction, towards any of the beautiful nearby islands and that unfortunately, this island is very close to the Shanty and thus suffers all the time Please advise if this information is correct
