Guatemala / Accommodation

A guide to accommodation options in Flores & Lake Peten

Where to stay in Flores & Lake Peten

Most visitors to Flores & Lake Peten are intent on visiting the Mayan ruins of Tikal and perhaps the lesser known ruins of Yaxha too.

While we do feature accommodation at Tikal itself, the reality is that, apart from the ruins, there isn’t a whole lot going on.

For those clients who wish to enjoy everything that the region has to offer but at the same time have access to bars, restaurants and just somewhere to have a stroll, the beautiful island setting of Isla de Flores is hard to beat.

Although the island can boast quite a few hotels, many are somewhat basic with the standout option being the charming Hotel Isla de Flores. Just across the causeway from Flores, on the mainland, are a handful of mid-range hotels that are more geared towards tour group than independent travellers but which are perfectly adequate such as Hotel Maya Internacional.

As a further alternative, within relatively easy reach of Flores we also feature a couple of luxurious lakefront hotels, the Hotel Bolontiku & Hotel Las Lagunas.

Hotel Bolontiku is located on Lake Peten itself and even has its own shuttle boat service linking it with Isla de Flores.

Hotel Las Lagunas on the other hand is a short drive from Flores and enjoys an equally stunning lakeside setting within its own, private nature reserve.

Other, non-featured hotels that we can book include Camino Real Tikal (not located at Tikal!) and La Lancha which is owned by none other than director Francis Ford Coppola.
