Flores, Guatemala (Near Tikal)

Flores, Guatemala is a good place to stay if you are going to visit Tikal. There is a nice selection of hotels and restaurants to choose from. The Parque central is located on the top of the town. The town itself is on an island just across from the town Santa Elena. Tikal is about 1 1/2 hours away and staying in Flores can drastically cut your hotel and food costs. The people are friendly and polite. Lago De Peten Itzais clean and many people swim in it to cool down.This is what the streets of Flores look like.
