Flores is a small island on Lake Peten set near the beautiful Mayan temple ruins of Tikal. Rooms are easy to find here and Amigos Hostel is by far the most colourful. Remember to get up early and take the 4.40 am tour to tikal. This means you get to see the jungle wake up.
Bus to Flores then minibus to Tikal. Hostel Amigos can be found at www.amigoshostel.com
For those of us of a certain age, it will always be simply Star Wars. Now, I beleive it is Episode IV: A New Hope. Late in the movie, a rebel base is situated in a remote jungle - with the occasional Mayan pyramid poking through the trees. This is the Mayan city of Tikal - close to the Guatemalan town of Flores.
Tikal, Guatemala - nearest Airport/ Bus station at Flores.
