          Was the seaweed gone? I know earlier in the year the beach and water were covered in reddish seaweed.

          Hello we are deciding if we are going to rent a unit here in July. We have stayed in Playa del Carmen a couple times, the last time at Xaman Ha Condos in 2008. My concern is the beach. August 2015 we were in Cozumel and took the fairy over just for the day, and the smell and seaweed were terrible, we literally got back on the boat and got out of there. From reading some of the reviews I get their is still a lot of seaweed, and the beach at El Faro is rocky and narrow. Could someone please clarify if the ocean is swimmable and the beach is clean? I go to Playa for the beach and don't want to have to travel to Cancun or Cozumel every day to swim in the ocean 😠
