Cancun, Q.R. — Sargassum along Cancun beaches has seen a dramatic reduction over the past several weeks with minute amounts making landfall. Municipal workers are having no problem removing what does hit shores, combing beach sand afterwards to ensure a pristine area.
The sargassum alert level for a majority of the state’s beaches remains very low, according to the light indicator of the Oceanographic Institute of the Mexican Navy. They report current seaweed figures are comparable to those of 2018, when the flow was minimal.
Even though the presence is currently low, the agency said that arrivals of slightly larger batches could be expected during the remainder of month, from Sian Ka’an to Tulum, and from Puerto Morelos to Cancun.
