    At the meeting point, there were approximately 20-30 people and 2 guides. They split us into two groups. I'm not sure why they didn't have an English-speaking group and a Spanish-speaking group, but each group was mixed. So each guide had to give instructions and information in English, then in Spanish. This made for longer and cumbersome waiting times throughout the tour. Our guide Ivan was articulate, friendly, and learned. The tour was fine, but we seemed to spend most of the time listening to instructions, getting through the entrance, and receiving our earpieces. The actual tour was rather quick. We did the optional tapas at a restaurant afterwards. By this time, we had experienced many different tapas and the ones at this restaurant were not good. We skipped the park tour as we were tired from the previous night.
