Flores, Guatemala


Tikal, located in Flores, Guatemala, has been hailed as one of the most spiritually powerful spots on earth. The site, with its towering Mayan pyramids, is regarded as one of the most important cultural and natural reserves in the world. The park encompasses 222 square miles of thick, tropical jungle in the Petén. Tikal is an hour and a half drive west of the Belizean border at Benque Viejo del Carmen or a short flight from Belize City to the Flores airport, plus an hour's drive through the countryside to the national park. There are many great hotels in Flores. We recommend the ones listed below.
