    Wow, I’ve never seen that before! It must have been quite shocking.

    Yes it was! We never saw it on any of our prior visits to the island either. I believe it’s more common on the eastern side of the island…

    Welcome to Puerto Rico. We have seen all that seaweed in the east coast in Palmas Del Mar. Their beach is so filled with it that it is unswimmable.

      Hi Tonie. We were actually strongly considering Palmas del Mar, but you are right, the seaweed was pretty nasty, at least when we visited…

    Hi, great blog. I’ve enjoyed reading about your adventures. We’re coming to PR (San Juan area) in March and have just learned about the seaweed. Is it still there? Do you think we should be worried about it affecting the northern beaches around San Juan? Thanks so much!

      Hi Jennifer. I’ve only seen the sargassum here that one time, but then again, we’ve only lived here for 6 months. I’m sure it comes by now and then. I have no first hand experience of the San Juan area… sorry.
