After the zip lining, camel rides were next on our agenda. The total amount of time spend riding the camel is 30 mins, however, the excursion is two hours. To start the tour, we were educated and introduced to the camels. We were required to wear clothes over our head, as the sun was very strong, and they said this was the ‘local’ way.

After the guided camel ride through the canyons, we were able to interact with the camels.

We had the opportunity to feed the camels carrots, as they are the camels’ favorite snacks. The catch was, we had to feed the carrots from our mouths, as the camels wanted to give us kisses, or a ‘beso’.

Personal Experience: This was my first time ever riding a camel, let alone being in close contact with one. I imagined the ride to be something similar to riding a horse, which I have done many times. I felt that the camels were more uncomfortable to ride than horses have been in the past. The camels were very friendly, giving off gentle vibes. The trainers were bribing the camels with treats to stay on path, and it made for an enjoyable experience. I had thought the total ride time would have been two hours, but 30 mins was plenty for my liking.
