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.

... the two of us and purto is not impressed by the food so we head to a restaurant out of the rain for him to get some pasta and I try a Brahva beer. Not bad too.

It was nothing but bliss.
The next day we drank beer and went tubing.

... restaurant we went to socialize with the others. In last few weeks we felt a little bit lonely because we hadn┤t met many backpackers with whom we could spend some quality time. It was obviously our fault resulting from the fact that we always preferred to stay in cheaper places than to pay a bit more for a hostel recommended in all guidebooks. Guatemala was great in this sense because there were a lot of people making exactly the same trip like us, starting in Mexico ...
... plots of debris, mounding dirt over the graves, applying whitewash and long pine needles then topping the graves with flowers and wreaths. I watch as some women making very specific patterns with the flower blossoms. Some graves display the Mayan numbers, perhaps noting the age of the deceased or year of birth/death, I don't know. I am quite touched by this ...
... Q20 p.p.), so we finally decided to go to Flores, and it turned out to be a good decision.
The total ride was around 2 hours. We arrived at the bus terminal of Santa Elena, the neighboring city of Flores. Flores is pretty much a tiny island in the Lake PetÚn Itza, just connected to Santa Elena by a small bridge and boats. We were offered a transfer for Q10 per person at the bus station (1,7km away), but since the Irish couple with whom we had been travelling all day long ...
