An essential component of each CDC development is giving back to the community.  CDC is committed to the development of community initiatives ranging from local recycling programs, beach clean-up campaigns, environmental protection/conservation awareness programs as well as education and reforestation programs.  CDC identifies and partners with specialized organizations such as the Reef Check Foundation for the implementation of said programs.

The organically grown Punta Sayulita Surf Classic event is a great example of community events that support various local Sayulita community initiatives and fundraising programs.
