    That's too bad...I guess as long as it's not like a few years ago when they were steadily hauling dump trucks loads away, it's not the end of the world. :)

    It's no where near the way it was in 2015, and even if it was, it's still Akumal, and we're going in just a few more weeks.

    We were there in 2015 when it was bad, and still had a nice week....we just swam around it for the most part. It's all the roped off areas, fin bans, regulations, etc. and all the hassles that are keeping me from going back. Too many other great snorkeling destinations out there that are 100% hassle free....and after all, that's what vacation is about for me.

    We stayed at Secrets Silver Sands last December (2016) and the seaweed was a massive problem.  A multi-man crew would spend the entire day moving the seaweed from the north end of the resort's beach to the south end, where they dumped all the seaweed back into the ocean.  Then the next day they did it all again--for the entire week we were there.
     
    Is this the new norm for the Riviera Maya?  I hope not.

    Not at all.  It comes and goes.  sometimes none at all, sometimes a little, sometimes a lot.....

     



     

    Nothing wrong with me that a margarita on the beach wouldn't fix.......................

    Re:  "Is this the new norm for the Riviera Maya? "
     
    All depends how you define "this".   If you mean lots everyday, then no.   If you mean lots one day (or even a week), then nothing other days, light other days, then yes.
     
    At this point in time, it's hard to say with any reasonable level of certainty what the situation will be next week, next month, next season.  It's being studied but it's a very complicated model.
