When it is really hot there have been outbreaks of cyanobacteria algae. This year it has been nice with no issues. I have paddled a lot with no problems.

As for as I am aware, there are no alligators in Lake Atitlan. Also, the owner of Panasurf, Juan, would not allow you in the water if there were any. He is very conscious of keeping his clients safe.
