Guatemala/f/u to previous planning question


What are the pros and cons of staying in the park of Tikal or in Flores.  We might want to do a sunrise tour, but I'm wondering if we stay inside Tikal since we'll be forced to eat all meals there, and limited other things to do, if it is worth it.  But I guess you can sleep later, than being in flores and having to drive to park for a 4 a.m. sunrise.  What do you think?

The advantage of staying at the park are
- you arrive on the site before the bus tours..
- less people
- for the sunrise if it is clowdy you won't see much
- if you like the mayan history and wants to take your time better to stay at the site

Nice little island , great restaurant from the hotels on the shore
not much to do..
takes 45 minutes to go to the site...

Also it depends when you will be arriving at Tikal
If you are living from Guatemala city and arrive the morning better consider to stay at Tikal
if not would stay at Flores
Hope it helps

All questions related to real estate for Guatemala particularly in the area of Lake Atitlan. Invesment for retirment, rental, buildings, regulations,.... I live in Santa Cruz La Laguna, 15 minutes boat ride from Panajachel where I work. I have 2 little daughters (5-7) who go to Life school everyday. So if you need help to relocate or for a short experience in the lake area don't hesitate. Also I'm an official tour guide for the Guatemalan Institut for tourism (INGUAT) and I have an extensive experience of the country.
