Vast, sparsely populated and jungle-covered, Tikal in Guatemala's largest department, El Petén, is ripe for further exploration. Located deep in lush jungle, the ceremonial center of Tikal is, for many, the most impressive Mayan site. Two things stand out about this region - the well-preserved (and often unrestored) archaeological sites and the abundance of wildlife that inhabits the jungle.
For those who want to explore the beauties of Tikal region, a great option is set base in Flores with its small lakeside hotels and restaurants. This river island, located 65 km and 1h30min journey from Tikal, it's hugely picturesque and you don't have to spend a lot of money to get awesome views.
