Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival in Flores
On arrival into Flores, you’ll make your way to your hotel – a charming little place in the old centre with a roof terrace which overlooks the lake. The town itself is a great place to spend an evening or two, with some really good restaurants and a promenade which you can stroll around as you take in the views. It’s best to get an early night though, as tomorrow morning you’ll be up early to head to the ruins.
If you want a really unique experience then you can opt to head to the site for sunrise with a guide, otherwise we’ll arrange for transport to take you to the gate so that you can explore independently. Tikal has some of the largest pre-Columbian temples in the Americas, including the Lost World Pyramid and Jaguar Temple. You can spend hours wandering through the boulevards and will probably see plenty of wildlife popping out of the jungle on your way.
*Arranging a visit to Tikal can be a little complicated, since you need a ticket which can only be purchased locally at one of Guatemala’s main banks (for about £30) and should be done before you get to Flores. Don’t worry though, we’ll explain it in more detail before you go!
Continue your journey
After another evening relaxing in Flores, it’ll be time to check out and carry on to your next destination. We can book extra nights for you here though of course, if you’d prefer to hang around a little longer.
