Flores - A small, beautiful, quaint island in the middle of Lake Peten Itza, in Peten, Guatemala, full of amazing food and good vibes.
The lake is clean and sparkling too!
The island has a main road that wraps around the island, a sidewalk and road along the lake, with boardwalks leading into it and restaurants/bars on the other side of it.
It is a dream!
Even the vibes are amazing - tourists laughing and jumping into the lake. Greenery and beautiful homes surround it as well and there are boats that can take you out on to the water, as well as jet-skis, etc. Plus the Tikal National Park, which is full of ancient Mayan pyramids is just about an hour away and plenty of taxis or shuttles available to take you to/from there.
We went to Casa Amelia and watched the gorgeous sunset go down over dinner and drinks after a day of running around Tikal.
