How To Spend A Weekend In Flores, Guatemala
In the north of Guatemala most travellers will find themselves staying in Flores, a beautiful Spanish colonial town occupying an island in the middle of a lake, as their base to explore the nearby ruins of Tikal. While the ruins are undoubtedly world-class, the town itself is definitely worth exploring for a few days. The food, drinks and coffee options are plentiful, the architecture and colourfully decorated buildings eye-catching and the sunsets - oh, the sunsets! Every afternoon the island is treated to a stunning display - and the cafes, bars and ice cream sellers offer plenty of treats to enjoy while you take in the splendour.
