Flores

Flores is located in the north-eastern part of Guatemala. It is the center of the largest department of El Petén, which occupies about 1/3 of the country's territory. Its historical part is located on the island on Lake Petén Itzá. Not far from the city, a jungle-covered area begins. It is here, in the Tikal National Park, north-east of Flores, that one of the largest ancient Mayan cities is located. Numerous tourists leave Flores early in the morning on tour to see the famous pyramids with temples on top of them. There was also a Mayan settlement on the site of the city, which was captured and destroyed by the conquistadors in 1697. In Flores, you can walk the narrow streets with preserved colonial buildings, take a boat ride on the lake, visit the surrounding caves, attend the zoo a few kilometers east of the city.
