An island-town connected to the mainland by a causeway where many travelers base themselves for visits to Tikal. It's nice but I enjoyed staying at El-Remate more. But the old winding roads are atmospheric and the guesthouses and restaurants are convenient for travelers.
I loved it! The weather is great, the place itself is magic you really feel you are trapped in history.
Its only 2Km around the small island town of Flores, making it a unique little place to visit located in Lake Peten.
nice town on an island in a lake, conection to visit tikal and other sites, the cheaper hotels are on the mainland
