The sewage outflow in La Manzanilla was a result of high levels of storm water runoff. With dry weather upon us, the surface water overflow has ceased. The local beaches test negative for fecal coliform and Ecoli.
While that is not to say that there could be pathogens present that are normally there, the safety of the beach waters has likely returned to it's normal state. During Semana Santas, there will be hundreds of people swimming in the local waters.
It is really a personal decision as to whether or not you will swim in the local water. Not sure why Melaque would be better, but the remote beaches north of here are a good option.
