Field Notes from Playa Del Carmen
Taking a trip to a beautiful shoreline south of the boarder.
Having returned from a recent trip, Peter shares with Tyler his take on the Yucatan Peninsula and the Riviera Maya, the most popular International tourist destination in Mexico. Tourism on this 80 miles of shoreline from Cancun to Tulum is booming with big time beachfront development but, as on all shorelines, challenges are emerging. Nearshore water quality is declining, some reefs are suffering, resorts this year were overwhelmed by Sargassum, and state regulators in Quintana Roo are concerned about interference with public beach access and damage to critical mangroves. Get a first hand account of this dynamic and mostly beautiful coastline on this episode of the American Shoreline Podcast. And as a bonus, Peter and Tyler take a look back at the 2019 and share hints on the new show coming next year to the American Shoreline Podcast Network. Viva Mexico on ASPN!
