TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Casona de la Isla Flores
This was a nice hotel. The rooms were comfortable. One of our ceiling fans did not work but the air conditioning unit made up for that. The location of the hotel is perfect, right by the river. The view was amazing. I did not particularly like the food in this hotel but I only had a burger and fries. That's not really enough to pass judgment. Overall, I had a great experience here and would definitely stay again.

Next, Luis took us to the 'lost world', one of the complexes within Tikal. Here we climbed a temple and an altar, and ate a berry that's supposedly good for digestion. Next stop was one of the palaces, where entry was ...
... pictures to Facebook and then we went for breakfast and to find lotion because Anthony's entire body is peeling, literally. his back, his wrists, his feet, his legs, his nose, etc. We then booked our tour to Tikal tomorrow (ancient ruins) and then came back to our air conditioned room. We probably should go out and explore the island but this room is so nice. Maybe in 10 min, or 20, or an hour we will go. No say. Muy frio, my ...

Annnnyyyyyywwwwaaaayyyy Tikal is a Mayan city that was occupied between 800BC and 900AD. It was eventually abandoned due to too much deforrestation and other stuff like that about not looking after where you live. Regardless it's fair to say they had a good run of it. When the Mayans dispersed they went on to form other communities higher in ...
