"chetumal to flores" Guatemala Tourist Trap Tip by gerardust

Guatemala Tourist Traps: 14 reviews and 6 photos

  el remate
by gerardust

when taking first class transport from chetumal to tikal, be sure to get off at Ixlu. If you don;'t they will drive you another 30 km to Flores. Ixlu is halfway between Flores and Tikal.

Unique Suggestions: When in Ixlu, you can either continue on to Tikal (just hitch a ride, there is plenty of transport) or stay at El Remate, which is a very pleasant town at a lake. No need to stay in dusty Flores. Flores is the tourist trap: hotels, souvenirs and restaurants, you will not find local life here! Its all touristy.

Fun Alternatives: El Remate!
