I don’t know of that many hotels with both a private lake and an island inhabited by monkeys. Welcome to Monkey Island at Las Lagunas hotel.
The second installment of three, detailing the overland route from Flores to Guatemala City. This time, the drive from Coban to Acul.
Considered by many to be the most beautiful spot in Guatemala (although the residents of Lake Atitlan might have something to say about that), Semuc Champey consists of a series of tiered limestone pools leading down to the River Cahabon.
As the travel hub of Guatemala’s northern Peten region, deciding where to stay in Flores is an important decision for visitors to the region.
Together with Lake Atitlan and the colonial town of Antigua, the ancient Mayan city of Tikal is undoubtedly one of Guatemala’s ‘Big Three’ tourist draws.
While the Big Three’ – Antigua, Lake Atitlan & Tikal – are visited by pretty much everyone who travels to Guatemala on holiday, there is plenty to see and do in-between and some wonderful drives.
As one of Guatemala’s ‘Big Three’ tourist draws, Lake Atitlan certainly isn’t short of hotel options and deciding where to stay can be a confusing process.
A relatively small country, dominated by a single major city and distinguished by its mountainous terrain, Guatemala has just one domestic flight route, that between Guatemala City and Flores.
Largely over-shadowed by the far more famous Tikal, few visitors to Guatemala's Peten region visit the nearby, equally fascinating, Mayan city of Yaxha.
As one of Guatemala’s ‘Big Three’ attractions (the other two being Antigua and Tikal), pretty much every visitor to the country will visit Lake Atitlan as part of their itinerary.
