Best Family Accommodation in Flores

Finding the best family accommodation in Flores, Guatemala doesn’t have to be hard. Here I’ve taken out the guess-work and reviewed 4 great family friendly hotels across several budgets. Gateway to the world-famous Tikal world heritage site, Flores is only 45 km from Tikal but feels a world away. Connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway across lake Peten Itza it is also a gateway to entering Belize in the North East.

Flores is where your family will most likely stay while visiting Tikal. If you need to know how to get from Flores to Tikal, we have a post on that, it’s really easy.

Its worth noting that none of the hotels include either the 12% Vat or 10% city tax.  This is common place when booking in Flores and I’ve found no hotels that allow you to pay all of it together.
