The small village of El Remate, located on the eastern shores of Lake Petén Itzá, is rapidly becoming a popular spot to stay while visiting Tikal. Its midway location between Flores and Tikal keeps you closer to the ruins but also in a much more tranquil and pristine environment than Flores or Santa Elena. Currently, you'll find budget lodgings in the village, while more upscale options can be found on the shores of the lake heading north out of the village.
