Flores is a pretty town on an island in Lago de Peten Itza. It is connected to the mainland by a 500m causeway. It was founded by the Itza people after they were driven out of Chichen Itza. It is believed that this was the last stronghold of the Mayans before they were finally conquered by the Spaniards in the 17th century. The Spanish totally destroyed the Mayan temples and city here and what you see now is a colonial town.
Most people stop here on their way to Tikal.
