Carmelita is a small village in Guatemala located due to the current adherence to the Tintal-Mirador causeway just 63 kilometers from El Mirador and 65 from Nakbé.

Get in[edit]

Buses leave Carmelita for Flores and vice versa (in Santa Elena Ffrom the market) at 13:00 and 05:00. It takes about 4.5 hours to arrive.

Get around[edit]



Bring a book and reading light.



There are two comedors in town, one on each side of the old airstrip. Don't expect anything of a food nature but beans and eggs unless you bring it yourself, and you will not be disappointed.


Thanks to solar energy, there are cold beers at the comedors and at some tiendas in town.


The comedor nearest the Cooperativa has two basic dorm rooms with four double beds each right behind it.

Make sure that a comfortable bed is available before paying. Make sure you know exactly where the outhouse is before dark.

Go next[edit]

There is presumably a cantina somewhere in town.
