Can you please give me some advice on how to improve this very early draft of a map of Flores, Guatemala. Thanks to all in advance.

Hello VHR,

Is there any way you could make it a map. There is a lot of distractions with the image as a background.

The north arrow is way too big. It covers half the image, and it is not that important.

Just some early thoughts,

vhramos - to use this for finding the way around, it would be handy with landmarks. A very basic/fundamental landmark in a town are the streets - and they are hard to find there now. Others are important buildings, such as churches.

I think you should look at how you can provide the map reader with enough information to find the way around.

It looks like a nice place with the sea all around like that!

I´d say it´d be best to have the labels near the objects. That would transform it into a map in my opionion.
