Officials in cities along the Mexican Caribbean revealed
that distance, speed of travel and currents have resulted in experts forecasting
a non-existent flow of sargassum seaweed this summer.

According to the Riviera
Maya News
, Director of the Quintana Roo Sargassum Monitoring Network, Esteban
Jesus Amaro Mauricio, said Cancun, the Riviera Maya and other key travel
destinations will be sargassum-free this summer vacation season.

Amaro Mauricio revealed that daily monitoring of the stinky
seaweed showed a lack of arrival for the next three months, due to the distance,
speed of travel and currents of the sargassum coming from Africa.

“From what we have been observing through the satellite it
is very clean,” Amaro Mauricio told the Riviera Maya News. “There is almost no
sargassum between Jamaica and the Yucatan Peninsula. As the sargassum continues
to move north like it has been, we will have lean months, that is, we are not
going to have a significant presence.”

While there will be small patches of the seaweed that make it
to beaches of Quintana Roo and the surrounding areas, officials said municipal
workers are immediately removing it before it begins to stink.
