What is the seaweed sargassum?

Sargassum is a type of marine macroalgae that can grow several meters long, they provide an environment conducive to some marine organisms and is found in tropical areas of the world, commonly near coral reefs

The Sargasso Sea is a region of the Atlantic Ocean, which is part of the Bermuda Triangle, it has an area of 3,500 km² of algae and plankton that form a superficial marine forest that extends from horizon to horizon

Three months ago, the natural sargassum season began on the Caribbean coasts, every year at this time some sargassum accumulates on the coasts and after a while it disappears due to marine currents.
This year, a lot of these seaweed have arrived on the coasts of Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum and our visitors are wondering why this phenomenon is due Well, the reality is that it is not yet known concretely, there are some theories that say that the Sargasso Sea is moving towards the south and some of these algae have reached the Caribbean coasts.

Fortunately, on the beaches of the Solaris Resorts of Cancun, the level of sargassum is the same as previous years in this same dates (not as much as other areas right now) and we hope that in a short time, it will disappear as normal as every year.

Even so, the beach cleaning brigades have grown a lot in the area as well as research on this phenomenon that is affecting several beaches of the Riviera Maya. The Solaris Resorts joined the cleaning programs in order to give our members and guests all the comfort in their stay and hoping that this natural process will follow its course
