Try something fast and fun that you can't do at home! Ride across the sands of the Riviera Maya, way up high on a camel's hump!

After being picked up by your guide at your hotel, you'll be driven to the camel ranch, where you'll be given a safety briefing and introduction to your friendly, charismatic camel.

Then you’re off on an exciting camel ride through the mangrove trees and a jungle landscape to a gorgeous white sand beach. The camels--desert creatures--love the sand, but don't go in to the sea!

After an exhilarating jaunt along the beach, you’ll ride back to the ranch, amazed at the unique experience you've just had!

  • Bilingual guide
  • 50-60 minutes camel ride through tropical landscapes and on a beautiful beach
