The renowned city of Belmopan is situated within reach of Poptun. You'll find this busy centre 120 kilometres to the northeast.
You don't need to travel for hours to experience some superb natural sights. Load up the car and follow the road signs to Rio Blanco Waterfall, 35 kilometres away from Poptun, for a laid-back day. Or maybe Naj Tunich is more to your taste? It's situated just 10 kilometres away.
Poptun Hill is well worth visiting. Also, see if you can take some nice holiday snaps at Poptun Church.
The nearby destinations of Dolores and San Antonio are worth having a look at. They're located 20 kilometres north and 35 kilometres east away, respectively. Jump in a car and find out what's going on!
The Lubaantun, Blue Creek Cave and Uxbenka are all pretty close to San Pedro Columbia, 50 kilometres to the east. Need more excuses to stop by? Rio Blanco National Park and Lubaantun aren't far away either.
Ready to crunch, munch, gnaw, nibble and slurp your way across Peten? A world of decadent flavours awaits you, so put on your stretchiest jeans and bon appétit!
A traditional ingredient in the food here is beans (frijoles). One more is chicken. Give them a go if you're not already a fan.
There's always a local plate or two you absolutely need to try, and during your stay in Poptun, chiles rellenos (bell peppers stuffed with meat and vegetables) is definitely one of them. Gallo en chicha (chicken stew) is some more traditional fare that's not to be missed.
Because a life without dessert isn't worth living, you should definitely order some coconut flan. This sweet treat sums up the region in just one mouthful.
Life's not all beer and skittles, but there's certainly nothing wrong with treating yourself to a cold one every once in a while. When you're in this area, ensure it's Victoria.
Whether you're an authority on vino or you have no idea what 'debourbage' means, you're sure to love a taste of the local Château DeFay White Merlot or Château DeFay Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot.
Before you pack up and say "Adiós", why not spend the last of your holiday allowance and buy yourself some souvenirs of Poptun?
Located 180 kilometres to the northeast is Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport (BZE), the nearest terminal. Make sure you have enough time to get there.
