    Planning on crossing into Guatemala at Cuauhtemoc / La Mesilla in 6 days or so.

    Any impact from the quakes on the border crossing or Lake Atitlan area?

    I doubt there was much impact at mesilla, but I am not sure. I am in Antigua and was here during the quake. The San Marcos region took the brunt of it, although there was damage in Huehuetenango too and some others. All the reports I hear are that Atitlan is fine too.

    Thanks - just wanted to make sure I wouldn't be met with a closed border or ruble filled streets somewhere
