The Colors of Flores

Set on a small island in Guatemala’s Lake Petén Itzá, the city of Flores is more than just a place to overnight en route to the Mayan ruins of Tikal. We spent a couple of days strolling its narrow cobblestone streets, exploring its historic church, and marveling at its amazingly colorful Spanish colonial architecture. It’s hard to be in a bad mood when in a place where everything is painted in such happy hues.
