    My wife and I did the tour with Nacho as our guide and Enrique as the driver. We were immersed in the early history of the Americas and walked the streets that Christopher Columbus walked. Very educational and fun day. Nacho is hilarious

    Not sure but your resort should be able to let you know if they have tours that pick you up from the reception or whether it is elsewhere.
