En route, you’ll visit El Salto, a small waterfall that runs most of the year, providing a watering hole for local wildlife and livestock. Next stop is Los Pozos (the wells) where a small, well-preserved church still stands after 100 years, and still serves the local people.
In La Candelaria, you’ll see the church, orchards, and species of animals indigenous to the region such as doves, hares, and iguanas. The people of La Candelaria are known for their long lifespans – most residents live well into their 90s!
The last stop is beautiful Migrino Beach where you’ll have fun in the sun, with time to play on the white sand beaches. In season, you may even see migrating gray whales off the coast.
Camel Riding Safari
Camels in Cabo San Lucas? Why not! Although camels are not indigenous to the Los Cabos area, they are perfectly suited to the desert climate. These unusual creatures can go up to 2 months without water depending on how hot the daytime temperatures are. They are widely used for transportation and work in desert climates just as horses are used in more temperate areas.
Arriving at Camel Quest, you’ll be introduced to your camel and you’ll learn about these warm and gentle animals through a variety of fun and games. You’ll take photos of you with your camel that you can purchase after the tour, then you’ll get to help us feed the camels, before hopping on board your camel for a walk through the desert oasis of El Tule canyon. After the tour you can refresh yourself with food or drinks at the canyon restaurant. This is a very fun tour for kids especially. We even have four young camels that are the perfect size for kids to ride.
