There are endless travel experiences that you can be sure of doing at any beach destination, such as taking a quad bike tour on the sand, swimming with dolphins, or maybe board a boat to snorkel on a reef. Undoubtedly, they are very pleasant experiences, however, when you take any of the flights to Los Cabos you can find an experience worthy of the Middle East, we are talking about the opportunity to get on a Camel in an arid scenery and walk as if it were a journey through the desert.
Walk through the desert in Los Cabos
This trip has become one of the main routes of Los Cabos, this is because all people, when we think of camels, don´t see them as domestic animals, and rather we visualize them as animals of exotics that live in the conditions more extreme where man can hardly live. However, who wouldn´t like to live closely with this beautiful animal?
Moreover, it is like getting on this friend from the desert, it is like going back to history when in the Middle East they were used as transport and cargo animals. Today, despite new customs, camels are still beasts of burden and beasts to plow the land in places like Asia and Africa. Although the situation in Los Cabos is completely different, here really, camels are animals that have been domesticated and with proper care, they have become excellent companions for a walk.
The place where the adventure begins
To live the experience you must move to Rancho San Cristóbal, it is an intact semi-desert natural reserve, among its facilities it has three turtle camps where, up to 70 thousand small turtles are released every year. The first thing you must do when arriving at the ranch is to board a four-ton shipment vehicle, which carries groups of up to fourteen people. This transport is resistant both in the jungle and in the desert, and was normally used in the Second World War by Germans and Swiss as military vehicles in the jungles, mountains and deserts.
From desert to beach
Passing the desert crossing, the vegetation changes as you approach the sea and this is thanks to the sea breeze, suddenly the panorama opens and you will find a virgin beach of fine sand, where the waves give a great spectacle worthy of being photographed. There is already the camel camp, where you will receive the trainers of the camels who will give you the safety instructions to make the walk in the sand, as well as teach us more about these majestic animals and their ways of life.
The moment to walk
Once you have your helmet in the form of a turban on your head, you must climb the camel to be more than two meters from the floor, so hold on to the aluminum chair and enjoy the walk on the sand. All the way, you will be accompanied by a cameleer who will mark the route, and a photographer, who will keep the record of the experience where you rode a camel, so you remember it always, and soon you want to return on one of the flights to Los Cabos.
