Tulum receives sargassum vessel, official dump sites

Tulum, Q.R. — In order to address the problem of sargassum on the beaches of Tulum, the Navy of Mexico delivered a vessel to City Hall, which will be used in the Tulum National Park.

The donated vessel was received by mayor Victor Mas Tah and municipal officials who thanked Captain Hugo Cárdenas Verdugo and the willingness of the federal authorities to reinforce the work of collecting sargassum on the public beaches.

“The coordinated efforts of the various levels of government is important, along with society and businessmen, who are joining in the task of collecting sargassum, since it is necessary to recover the beauties of the Tulum beaches for the benefit of citizens, as well as domestic and foreign tourists,” explained the mayor.

The boat was transferred to Playa Pescadores where it will be equipped for the collection of sargassum on the beaches of Tulum National Park.

Also, the state government has donated two properties in Tulum that, over the coming weeks, will be used as an official sargassum lanfill site. Mas Tah said that with these properties, which are located on the Tulum-Coba road near the town of Akumal, transportation costs will be reduced and the capacity for the final disposal of sargassum, increased.
