View across the town from the museum

Dolores is a town in south-central Petén.


Get in[edit]

Dolores is on the main route from Guatemala City to Flores, and all buses between the two will pass the entrance to the town.

Get around[edit]


Spanish colonial church in Dolores
  • Ixkun. An unrestored Maya ruin a few miles outside town, with several sculpted stelae, including the tallest in Petén.
  • Museo Regional del Surest de Petén. Archaeological museum with a nice collection of Maya ceramics and sculpture from southern Petén.
  • El Chal. An unrestored Maya ruin just off the road to Flores, with forest-covered pyramids, and a number of badly-damaged sculpted monuments.







Go next[edit]

  • Flores, the departmental capital, is straight up the highway to the north, with plenty of buses from the town entrance.
  • Río Dulce is to the south, with a biosphere reserve and colonial fort. Again, plenty of buses pass southwards en route to Guatemala City, and also pass Río Dulce.
