Editor's Comment: I would go the whole nine yards. I would not mind paying an established fee to enter any public beach area, as long as there were security guards in the parking lots, fresh water showers (clean) to rinse off the salt water and sand before you get back into your car, bathrooms, trash cans for garbage, if the beaches were clean and litter free, etc. I would suggest that the government of Panama could provide the "seed money" to build these facilities in places like Gorgona, and then the local community board can collect and manage the fees to hire the employees, to the maintenance (I know, try not to laugh), etc. Hey, it's not a perfect world, but there's nothing wrong with trying to make it a little better, right? I would even pay a daily use fee for a bohio or something to get out of the sun, lifeguards, etc.
