It is expectedthat the sargassum seaweed flow onto the beaches of Mexico will be almost nonexistent this summer. Cancun and Playa del Carmen beaches should remain largely weed-free due to distance, speed of travel, and currents.

According to Esteban Jesus Amaro Mauricio, the upcoming 2023 summer vacation season in Cancun and the Riviera Maya is expected to be sargassum-free. According to daily monitoring, there won’t be any sargassum arrivals for the next three months, according to the director of the Quintana Roo Sargassum Monitoring Network.

He clarified that there is daily surveillance from Africa to the Yucatan Peninsula’s coasts. According to him, there are roughly 3,000 kilometers between the Arch of the Antilles and the Yucatan Peninsula, and sargassum travels 1,000 kilometers every month.

The next wave of seaweed is not likely to arrive until after the summer vacations, according to the forecaster, who also notes that any sargassum that does arrive would continue to be minimal.

Municipal employees have removed any seaweed that has come ashore. According to Amaro Mauricio, Isla Mujeres’ mainland and the beaches of Cancun have both experienced very minor landfalls; this trend is expected to continue for the summer of 2023 in Cancun.
