When you booked your vacation in Playa del Carmen, you had one thing in mind and one only: to lay down under the Caribbean sun, on a hammock, with a Margarita in one hand, maybe a book on the other, and with no other plans than to stay on a relaxing loop, just asking for a refill once in a while, and maybe a delicious snack and repeat. Drink, chill, repeat. That’s the Caribbean way! You work so hard all year long; you deserve it! So you pack your flip-flops, bathing suit, your sunscreen (please, don’t forget the sunscreen), and off you go! Ready to spend a week in a beach resort at Playa del Carmen in the Riviera Maya, the gorgeous vacation strip of the Mexican Caribbean, with perfect weather and beautiful beaches. You waited so long to spend your Summer vacation there, only to find out that the white sand beaches have been infested with an unpleasant brown seaweed known as sargasso. You still can lay on the sand, but that desire for jumping to water has probably vanished. Not what you expected. And now what? Is a plant going to ruin your vacation plans? Is your dream of sipping on Margaritas gone? Of course not! Is there’s something you can do? Yes, you can!
First, don’t panic. The “sargasso season” is on its downfall. One of the many natural phenomena happening in the ocean (like a tropical storm) is probably changing the currents and taking the seaweed somewhere else as you read these lines. So if you’re lucky enough, you won’t need this information. However, just in case, check out our recommendations for living a seaweed-free experience in Cozumel. Yes, you got it right: Cozumel is the solution!
The Riviera Maya, the nearby city of Cancun, and the island of Cozumel offer many things to do that will help you get through it and maybe even forget about the seaweed. We promise you won’t get bored; From archaeological sites to natural wonders like the cenotes, natural parks, shopping malls, and more, there’s plenty of things to do here! You can even get a tour to Chichen Itza by plane!
But we get it; you booked a beach resort and look forward to enjoying the beach, right? What if your beach resort in Playa del Carmen has this awful brown seaweed all over the shore? Ok, no problem. If a seaweed-free beach is what you want, a seaweed-free beach you’ll get.
Cozumel is famous for its beautiful reefs, visited by diving enthusiasts worldwide. But it’s also known for being a top cruise destination, so it offers some fine restaurants, exclusive jewelry shops, and, of course, a lot of gorgeous spots to spend the day in touch with nature. Hands down, the best park on the island is Chankanaab, Cozumel’s National Reef Marine Park. Inside this natural reserve, paradise awaits. That what you’ve dreamed before is possible when visiting a secret haven called The Cabana beach. This exclusive beach club is indeed one of the best-kept secrets on the island, where you can enjoy the white sand and the warm crystalline waters of the Caribbean Sea in a private beach area of the Chankanaab National Park. The best part, it’s 100% seaweed-free. The club is set on a private beach, where you can enjoy a delightful snorkeling session amongst colorful fish or kayak if getting wet is not your thing. It’s an excellent spot for relaxing on a hammock under the palm trees or, even better, at your cabana while enjoying some fine mixology and delicious gastronomy. You’ll find your expectations exceeded as The Cabana Beach is designed to please the most demanding clientele and to make your visit to Cozumel an unforgettable and unique experience. Enjoy a personal concierge for food, beverages, recreational activities, and anything else you may need. Sit back and enjoy the stunning views of the Mexican Caribbean to the sound of the ocean.
