TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Casona del Lago Flores
Our first accomodation fell through and we ended up driving around and found this beautiful little hotel right on the lake in Flores. Clean, pretty with a stunning view - what else could you want? It was under $50 Aus per night and the staff were lovely and very helpful.

So I ran off to find the bathroom that the tour guy gave me directions too but I wasn't going to make it. So as soon as people were out of sight I booked it into the trees to do my business. Guatemalan living? Or backpack living? I don't know. But welcome to my life. anyways the rest of the tour was cool, we saw some amazing ruins, ...
El remate is where we would be basing ourselves for the next 2 nights, being in close proximity to Tikal. Lizzy and James had sorted a very cheap hotel at £14 a night per couple called Hotel Las Gardenias. We had great views of the lake and the place had a nice local feel. Our hotel had a restaurant which we enjoyed eating at on both nights. It also seemed to be the local hangout for the Police and Military who were always eating while we were ...
... hostel. I was postponing booking my Tikal trip tomorrow to see what his plans are. He's always been really keen on going to check out the El Mirador ruins close to the Mexico border. By mass (not height) the world's biggest pyramid is up there. I'm not going because it's a five day hike. Over flat ground, and there'll be mules to carry your stuff admittedly but I am still far too hiked out to even consider it. Robin however has found a few ...
