Flores holidays

The colonial, red-roofed town of Flores is built on an island in Lake Peten Itza and is connected to the mainland district of Santa Elena by a 500 metre causeway. The site was first established by the Itzaes after their expulsion from Chichen Itza, and wasn’t conquered by the Spanish until 1697, who subsequently destroyed all traces of the Mayan buildings. Nowadays the town’s airport is the gateway for visitors wishing to visit Tikal, who often simply pass through enroute to one of the hotels or lodges dotted along the shores of Lake Peten Itza.
