Photographer's Note

Lake Peten Itza is in north-eastern Guatemala near the famous Mayan site of Tikal. On the eastern shore is the small village of El Remate which has several small hotels and restaurants. We stayed here for a couple of days after exploring Tikal. There is a good nature reserve on the northern shore of the lake, Biotopo Cerro Cahui natural reserve. The is good 7 km trail that wind through rainforest up a small hill to a couple of miradores (lookouts) that provide a panoramic view of the lake and El Remate.
