Unfortunately, the sargassum is back on our shore; however, our team has been tackling it since day ONE and they are really doing a great job at it! Check out the pictures!

Sargassum influx increasing on Ambergris Caye

A massive load of Sargassum seaweed is expected to continue making its way to Belize over the coming months. Despite arriving later than normal this year, the amount of the seaweed landing on the shores in the region has apparently already exceeded the 2019 figures. On Ambergris Caye, Sargassum continues to accumulate triggering beach resorts to establish containment barriers to keep their shorelines free of the algae.

Although the San Pedro Town Councilís (SPTC) sanitation department has been trying to keep the beaches clean in and around the downtown area, large mats of the seaweed continue to sneak in at night. The decaying smell of the algae is already becoming stronger as more and more Sargassum makes it to the shore, where it dies. The sanitation crew hopes the influx decreases as it can affect the opening of tourism next month.
