Tulum sargassum & trash update, Nov. 3


The three-day holiday is over (Dia de Muertos) and the Mexican workers were out cleaning the public beach at Playa Maya for the first time since Friday.

FullSizeRender(188)By now, the tide has taken some of the plastic back out to sea and the sargassum is starting to rot. It stinks.

FullSizeRender(184)So I hung out at El Paraiso this afternoon, where they clean their beach on a regular basis.

FullSizeRender(185)I did not go to the south end today. I was lazy. But I met some Argentinians who said there is some sargassum and trash – it’s hit or miss because it depends on which properties are on top of cleaning the beach by their businesses.

FullSizeRender(182)FullSizeRender(183)Hopefully the mess gets cleaned up before thunderstorms in the forecast hit the beaches.
