North Shore, Lake Peten Itza, and Quexil Lagoon Travel Guide

North Shore, Lake Peten Itza, and Quexil Lagoon

The small villages of San Pedro, San José, and San Andrés, on the northwest shore of Lake Petén Itzá, have beautiful vistas of the sparkling lake. Several upscale lodges and hotels have opened here or on nearby Quexil Lagoon, and the area is accessible via bus or car on an improved (but bumpy) dirt road from El Remate or Santa Elena, or in the clockwise direction from San Benito.
