Weather in May at Lake Atitlan in May 2014

The weather has been cold and wet for the past two days, as rainy season arrived on schedule in 2014.. Bt that’s after dark. We’ve had warm weather in the daytime, though the sky has been overcast much of the time.

Current forecasts are for this weather to last through May, but the El Nino effect is projected to cause a drought in June and July due to lack of rain. So if you’re planning a vacation at Lake Atitlan, put it off until then if possible. Unless, of course, you enjoy cold, wet weather!
