Travel Blogs from Flores
The town proper is an island on Lago Petén Itzá, connected to land by a causeway. But the city itself is a wonder — dense with colonial, red-roofed buildings (you can see from the pictures some great structures), narrow cobblestone streets, a historic church and Spanish plaza, and restaurants that are easy to stumble upon walking the city's …
... so we packed the remainder of our things up without aircon and by
head torch light. The walk to the bus was fun too, all the roadside cafes and
bbq’s had lit candles and people were dining by the light of the coal and
candles, it was quite romantic really.
The bus was interesting, the seats we had bought were the
reclining ones on the lower deck, we both took it in turns to have Indi lie

... caught seafood could not have tasted better, especially the Caribbean seafood salad with coconut, papaya, mango, banana.... A wonderful end to the Mexican part of the trip. Crossing the border into Belize involved a complicated sequence of transport including taxi, bus, private van, foot and finally ferry to the small limestone coral island of Caye Caulker. Only five miles long and under one mile wide and with just 3 roads, even ...

We were able to walk around and ...
... breath taking views of Semuc Champey below. The hike was well worth it to see these views of the valley below.

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.
