5. Peten Route


This route covers the department of Petén, the largest department of the country. Since Petén has special ecological and cultural aspects, it is considered a distinct route, which includes eight destinations to visit.

The Petén region has a warm and humid climate, so light clothing is recommended; take fresh water, hat, insect repellent and a rain jacket during the rainy season.
