Flores is an attractive and quiet town on an island on Guatemala’s second largest lake, Lake Petén Itzá. It is the gateway to Tikal, approximately one hour away.
Its narrow cobbled streets are lined with colourful red-roofed houses. They wind around the island, climbing to a park and historic church in the centre, from where there are good views of the lake and surrounding land covered in thick vegetation. It is pleasant to explore the maze of streets by foot, although the three-wheeled moto-taxis are also an entertaining way to travel. A short causeway links the island to the mainland districts of Santa Elena and San Benito.
