My wife and I have planned an eight night visit in late September (5 nights Panajachel – 3 nights Antigua). I was at the point of buying our airline tickets when I read an article posted on “Prensa Libre’s” website, dated May 31. The Guatemalan tourist department, Asistur, recommended that tourists avoid areas that were impacted by Agatha. Panajachel, all the cities and all the villages on Lake Atitlán, and some others in Sololá were described as having “major problems”. The travel warning also extended to Zunil and Almolonga in Quetzaltenango.
I’m not so much concerned with Antigua. However, I would appreciate any information on the situation in the Lake Atitlán area.
Thanks in advance.
