A significant amount of sargasso is approaching the Mexican Caribbean coastline. The seaweed stain extends from the arc of the lesser Antilles to the Yucatan Peninsula, so the recharge of sargasso will continue in the coming days with medium to high intensity, affecting the destinations of the central and southern coast of Quintana Roo.
In the report on the distribution and abundance of sargasso in the North and South Zone of Quintana Roo, where Cancun and the Mayan Riviera are located, the Sargazo Mass Arrival Early Warning System warned that the affected strip covers a 500 km stretch of coastal coastline.
This stretch would cover from Isla Blanca, to the North, to the Zaragoza Canal, in Xcalak, on the southern border with Belize, and affects with greater intensity the central and southern region of the State, while also reporting prevailing winds from the Southeast, conditions that act in synergy and carry sargasso in moderate to high intensity, especially towards the central and southern coast of Quintana Roo, at least for the next 72 hours.More
