San Jose Peten Vacation Packages
Far from the trappings of big city life, San Jose Peten is situated 170 miles (274 kilometers) to the north of the country's capital, Guatemala City.
Go along to some of the region's historical places, such as the Tikal and the Uaxactun.
Travel 4 miles (6 kilometers) to the east and you'll reach Jobompiche, a popular side trip location. Alternatively, you might opt to travel 6 miles (10 kilometers) southwest to explore Flores.
The youngsters may beg for burgers, but the adults get to choose. Peten is home to many dining options that won't disappoint.
Beans (frijoles) and chicken are ingredients often found in the region's kitchens.
Many of your most interesting memories will involve a meal. Seize the moment and try some of the local dishes, like chiles rellenos (bell peppers stuffed with meat and vegetables) and gallo en chicha (chicken stew).
Coconut flan is a delicious local treat that you simply cannot miss.
If you can feel the tension in your shoulders, meander down to a restaurant or bar and order a Victoria, a popular local beer.
Try out tea, a non-alcoholic alternative and a hit with the locals.
Whether you prefer full-bodied, dry wines or sweeter notes, it's worth tasting Château DeFay White Merlot or Château DeFay Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot. These regional varieties are best tried with the local cuisine.
Even a basic greeting in the native tongue will help you build rapport with the locals in Guatemala. A common expression is "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" ("Would you like to dance with me?"), which can be understood by almost everyone. Add "Este caballero pagará por todo" ("This gentleman will pay for everything") to the list and increase your ability to converse.
If you love special events and you're wandering in Peten close to the 15th of September, inquire about the nationwide celebration of Independence Day.
Pack your bags, say, "Adiós" and pick up a souvenir to take back home.
