The Baja Ranch Tour and Camel Safari from Los Cabos was a neat tour. We had a nice trek through land along with truck rides to the beach where the camels are. We took cool pictures with the camels and rode them for a bit. This was a memorable tour that gave us some cool documented memories. I do recommend.
I loved this excursion. Riding the camels was amazing and loved the pictures we were able to purchase at the end.
Our guide was so fun and informative as he told us about the desert terrain and information about the various cactus and plants.
We also had a great lunch including tequila tasting !! Highly recommend this tour
This was wonderful. Picked up and dropped off at hotel, started on a short nature hike from the drop off location. On the hike learned about different plants and animals native to the area, cacti that you can eat, poisonous, find water, etc. Then we got a ride in a terrain vehicle to the camel sanctuary site. Paired up and rode camel on a path and along the beach for 20 minutes. Next we had a nice buffet lunch with beers and tequila tasting. Finally after lunch we received a tortilla making demonstration. This entire experience was well-planned and amazing. Loved the fact that we are supporting the sanctuary for the camel's.
This was a very nice, unique activity, enjoyed by all. The staff was great, also included a lunch and tequila tasting.
One big warning, They are very big on selling you an Extremely Overpriced Picture package so they discourage you from taking your own pics. I get the pic package deal all over the world but this was the most expensive I ever encouraged. Statred at 129.00 down to about 25 for just one pic. disregard them and take your own as you do the tour
My husband and two adult daughters joined me on this trip. We had to walk down from our resort to the aquarium at the Cabo San Lucas Harbor to get the bus which took us out of town to where they run the camels. We were not permitted to take our own photos with the camels, but rather their photographers took pictures which were quite expensive to buy at the end of the tour Packages @ 100.00 US. We did not buy any. For the price of the tour, they could have included one picture, with the option to buy more, if interested. They put two riders on each camel but I do not think they size up the riders with the size of the camel,rather it was first come, first serve. My husband and daughter are both on the larger side and found themselves on the thinest of the animals. In short order their camel rebelled and sat down and refused to get back up, no matter how much their guide coaxed it along. After only a few feet, camels walk in single, file and escorted by a guide my husband and daughter aborted their ride, for fear of injury, and chose to walk back to our meeting place on their own steam. Next, the walking tour through the dessert to explore fauna and flora was very interesting and our guide was informative. Lastly, the authentic Mexican meal was very good and interesting although they ran out of dessert. They had a wondeful coffee beverage, loaded with sweet cream and chocloate AND, the best part of this expensive adventure was the tequilla tasting. We had several to try and we could have as much as we wished. That was a surprise. Now about the aboprted camel ride, to make up, our tour guide after having my husband complete an incident report presented him with a gift of a large bottle of their local tequilla, which was a very nice consolation prize although the value did not compare to what the aborted rides for two cost. Finally, we were safely driven back to our starting point at the aquarium at the harbor in Cabo San Lucas. All-in-All, this company attempted to take responsibility for the botched day. I recommend they do a better job sizing their animals to their guests so that the guests can enjoy the adventure they paid for and expected to have, and the animals are not made to carry a weight they are not capable of. Thankyou
If you are looking for something different to do this is a great tour. The guides are very nice and very funny. The camel ride was great and a once in a lifetime experience- how often do you get to ride a camel on the beach? You also get to have your picture taken with a special camel and give him a treat. Lunch was very good and the tequila tasting that followed gave some good information on how tequila is made and the different types. The kids learned how to make corn tortillas from scratch and got to try their hand at it. Definitely a fun experience.
This was a bit of a fiasco. The tour guides were delightful but the trip pretty much wasted our entire day and the expedition was not worth it. First we had to meet the van pick up from our hotel at 7:40 am and a ten minute drive to the main terminal in Cabo San Lucas that became almost an hour. We had to hang around in the facility until 9. Then we had a drive in a van with loud music blaring in our ears for 30 minutes. Nothing scenic on the drive. We arrive at Baja Ranch dressed for 82 degrees in Cabo and it was really cold and windy with no protection from the cold. It would have been so easy to have blankets in the van. Every one of us was shivering the entire tour. Then we waited outside in the cold while one by one each of us was given a photo op with Powder, a delightfully tame camel. But that was a waste of time for us as this took at least 30 minutes, just sitting watching the photographer. The camel ride was next. It was about 20 minutes long. Most men complained it was very uncomfortable, FYI. We then got into a van for an open air and cold ride to a lunch facility. A few brief words about cactuses and then we are ushered into the photo sales facility. We were given an hour to view the photos. Really uncomfortably cold so we hung around in the photo facility to get warm. Lunch was FABULOUS but we were really cold. Toward the end a few blankets came out, but not enough for everyone. Tequila tasting was fun still outside, and then back in the cold van and a bus ride back to Cabo. When we get there, it's 1pm but we are stuck in an incredibly noisey busy terminal to wait until the scheduled van departure, which does not leave until 2pm. We got back to our hotel about 3:45. The entire day gone. It really was unfortunate. We felt chilled for a few hours after leaving the Ranch as well. Not happy. Again, no discredit to the folks at Baja Ranch just the truth.
