This is a private ecotour to Flores, San Miguel, Tayazal and the local market (el Mercado). We’ll visit Maya ruins, Maya ceremonial site for the local Maya Itza. Nice little boat ride across lake Peten itza. Visit to a motmot cave. We’ll close the tour with a lunch at one of the best local, authentic Guatemalan restaurants in Peten – except for our little group, not another gringo anywhere in sight.
There is sooo much misinformation about the Maya heritage of this area. You won’t get any nonsense from us. You’ll get the straight-scoop on everything in Flores, San Miguel and Tayazal. We’ll also visit a Maya ceremonial site still used by the locals, descendants of the Maya who originally founded Nojpetén. We’ll visit the cave of a motmot – very cool bird – even better Maya legend.
We’ll finish the ecotour with a trip to the local Mercado for an authentic Guatemalan shopping experience and a good lunch at a local eatery. el Mercado is always fun and bustling full of shoppers and wonderful array of exotic fruits, spices, veggies and Real Guatemala.
