Seaweed on Mexico's Cancun beaches
An infestation of seaweed along large stretches of Mexico's Caribbean coast, home to many of the country's top beach destinations, is not a major problem, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Monday.

Attributed to climate change by many researchers, growing volumes of the brown seaweed have blanketed many beaches in recent years, alarming tourists as well as investors over the potential consequences for one of Mexico's major growth drivers.
