Last year, up to the last day of May, an arrival of around nine thousand 800 tons was reported.

Around 1,800 fewer tons of sargassum have washed up in Playa del Carmen so far this year compared to the same dates in 2023 when the phenomenon was more pronounced.

Lourdes Várguez Ocampo, Secretary of Sustainable Environment and Climate Change, mentioned that they expect the phenomenon to increase due to the high temperatures.

In recent days, a high arrival of sargassum has been observed on beaches in the center of Playa del Carmen and those located in the northern area of ​​the Solidaridad municipality.

Workers from the Federal Maritime Land Zone Directorate (Zofemat) carry out cleaning tasks on the coast, where levels are gradually increasing.

Although the arrival of algae was strong last year, it stopped in September, something that had not been seen in several years and that gave hope for the prompt end of the phenomenon.
