    What a great trip. Bipin & his team went above & beyond in regards to customer satisfaction. We did 2 nights/3 days. I'd recommend another day & for sure stay in the park. We missed out on some of the night time activities by staying in El Portel. If we ever make it back, we're for sure using TakeTours. Highly recommend!
