Loghan and I had a blast on our private tour of El Retiro. Our guide Carlos was amazing and very knowledgeable of the Area. He made us feel as if we were VIPs as he took us to different locations and showed us around the city. He even helped us when a local tried to overcharge us to go back for pictures. He was a cool guy who knew all of the best areas. He truly made our trip memorable.
