David Arévalo fue nuestro gurú y nos encantó! Tuvimos la suerte de tenerlo para nosotras solas ya que el otro grupo anuló en el último momento! Nos explicó todas las curiosidades del parque y nos transmitió su pasión por la historia y la escultura, ya que él también es artista. Sin duda una de las mejores experiencias! Muchísimas gracias David!!
