Lake Atitlan - what is the current state of Cyanobacteria in the lake?

Jump to last reply

We are thinking of planning a trip to Antigua and Lake Atitlan in March 2013 and I have been trying to find out the current condition of the water at the lake.

There doesn't seem to be anything up-to-date on google about the cyanobacteria outbreak in recent years so I thought I'd put the question out to anyone who lives in the area or has visited recently.

We are not necessarily planning on swimming in it (it would be freezing to us as we live in Florida ;-)!) but we would want to kayak and take boat trips etc and I am very keen on landscape photography so I guess if it looks bad that might be something I would want to take into account.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks very much.
