TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Villa Margarita Flores
We arrived in flores with nowhere to stay, so we ran into a tour agency who kindly showed us a couple of places. This place was perfect for our first night, we were tired, hot and bothered and the room had aircon and a tv. The owner was nice and helpful and he helped us book a return trip to Tikal. A good hotel right in Flores.

... we've nicknamed the Gin Judys (after Judge Judy, but they're total alcoholics). They really are awful people. They started in on Viv and me early on with passive aggressive comments mostly about how loud we are, but within a few days they'd had a go at most everyone else too. The last couple of days we've all been in cahoots on how to lose them during free time. It's totally mutual, we aren't being ...
... it also involved a jungle trek. The 1st bit of wildlife we saw, literally 5 minutes after leaving the car park, was a hand sized, hairy, black, man tarantula.

She watched as mentalists held it in their hands and even put it on their face. She was a ...
The dorm has a huge window looking out over the valley. Not a bad view to wake up to. The morning light didn't spoil my lie in, and I got up in time to go tubing. It wasn't planned and I nearly didn't bother, the draw of that infinity pool was pretty strong. But having established the girls that had signed up weren't the boring Americans we got stuck talking to last night I thought "**** it" and got involved.
We left at 11, ...
... our Spanish from spending our last 10 days or so in English speaking Belize, we somehow managed to get settled in our room and headed out for a bite to eat.
What a gem of a town Flores turned out to be! It could have been taken straight out of Europe, and in many ways I suppose it was. Set on an island in Lago Peten Itza, it was the site of one of the last Mayan centres in the area to be conquered by the Spanish in 1697. At the time it was covered ...
And so we crossed the border into Guatemala, shuttled from one official to another for a series of payments, stamps, passport checks and tourist demographic surveys. Finally we made it through to the other side and were immediately mobbed by taxi drivers, all vying with each other to offer a ride to our destination of Flores. A French-Canadian couple in the immigration queue behind us had suggested we share a taxi to split the cost, so between us we kept bartering the cost down ...
