A seasonal phenomenon, sargassum has had a wide-ranging impact on destinations in the United States, Caribbean and Mexico this summer. However, while reports focused on the science behind the acceleration of this issue, travelers still have more questions than answers. In Mexico, the tourism industry fought back and has put in place strong protocols to put tropics-bound travelers at ease whether they are traveling this month, upcoming winter travel season or already planning next year’s summer vacation. YesToMexico’s “Sargassum Fast Facts Guide” outlines how the tourism industry in Quintana Roo has proactively attacked the issue so visitors can prepare for and enjoy the beautiful Mexican beach vacation they imagined.
“Mexico’s tourism industry has always been fiercely committed to making sure guests have the best experience possible,” said Tom Brussow, president, YesToMexico. “No doubt, this year’s sargassum season has been unprecedented and presented some challenges. Realizing that, the resorts and local communities quickly responded and are working together to mitigate the impact to the Mexico experience further demonstrating why Mexico is the number one international destination for U.S. travelers.”
