Antigua to Flores
Not much on this page. Basically one day we got up hidously early one day and took off to make it past Guatemala City before the rush. We drove through to Flores.
Flores is on Lago Peten Itza. When I say on the lake, I mean on the lake. It's an island connected to the mainland by a causeway. There is a corresponding town on the mainland, but the island is the place where you want to go to.
It reminded me of a medieval town in Europe, small, centered around a church and all the buildings packed in together, because its an island all the roads are windy, so even though you can walk around it in about fifteen minutes, you always feel like there is somewhere to see.
We were there mainly to go to Tikal, which has its own page, but I can recommend sitting on hotel balconies and watching the sunset with a good drink.
