14. Flores – Guatemala

Flores is actually a small island on Lake Petén Itzá which connects to the mainland via a causeway. Travelers tend to visit the town as it’s close to famous Tikal archeological site, but offers a peaceful and safe experience.

You can reach most of the attractions by foot, but there are also auto-rickshaws for hire. You could visit Ak’tun Kan, which is an interesting cave with rock formations resembling animals, or go to Petencito Zoo and see jaguars, raccoons, and monkeys.
