If you are like me, you are always looking for something new and exciting to do around Central Florida. Don’t get me wrong, I love the theme parks, but I also like discovering new places to visit. Staying indoors during this COVID pandemic has really been tough for me too, because I get so antsy doing nothing, but like most people, that is what I’ve been doing. So I finally decided to take a step outside and go somewhere that has been on my bucket list for the last year - LunaSea Alpaca Farm.
LunaSea Alpaca Farm is located in Clermont, not far from Lakeridge Winery (so maybe next time add it to your plans before a day of wine tasting!). The farm is family owned with mainly alpacas and a few llamas. They offer tours, which you reserve in advance, for a donation of $10 each person. The tours are limited to a small number of guests and right now during the pandemic you can feel safe to keep your distance and wear your mask (although at the time attended not required - not sure if county rules have changed since visiting).
The tour (led by King) was informative, interactive, and unlike anything I had ever experienced. Although you don’t really walk very far, you are up close and personal with the Alpacas like nowhere I have ever been in my life. We got to be in their areas, pet them, feed them treats, and just be with them while they roam free.
It was interesting to learn that alpacas do not have top teeth, so although you see these huge teeth protruding from their mouth, they cannot bite you. This made me feel a lot safer around them and made the experience a lot more enjoyable. The babies of course were the highlight. They were so cute and just wanted to "chew" on everything - the chair, my purse, etc.
The tour lasted probably about an hour total and it was so much fun! I honestly cannot wait to go back and take others with me so they can experience what I did, as I feel it is something very unique that is being offered here in Central Florida.
Something new that LunaSea Alpaca Farm is starting to offer is “alpaca yoga” where you actually get to do yoga with the alpaca’s roaming around and then play with the babies afterwards. This is something I may consider trying out in the future now that I have been getting into yoga.
