It may seem like a crater, but it isn't. You would at least think it was formed by a meteorite or a volcanic eruption, but it's something else entirely. It's actually a natural phenomenon found only in the Negev Desert and the Sinai Peninsula. An outer layer of rock covers softer rocks, erosion eliminates the softer layers of rocks by dragging until the outside layer collapses in on itself leaving a structure similar to that of a crater. This Makhtesh, the most spectacular of all, is 40 kilometres long and about 8 kilometres wide with a maximum depth of 500 meters, so it's pretty overwhelming. There are a few lookouts to see the open mouth and although I didn't see them, I'm sure the sunrises and the sunsets from there are spectacular.
Regardless of religious beliefs, the Holy Land impresses. The intensity with which people live religion, politics... make it an extremely attractive place. Contrary to what you might believe, travel to Israel or the West Bank is not dangerous, at least not if you take the necessary precautions. We, a group of girls, hired a car and the journey passed without incident. Note for travelers used to the Middle East: unlike in neighboring countries, in Israel the prices are the European and both the hotels and the food have a similar to Spain.
This part of the Negev desert has long been home to the Bedouins, and it still is, just to a much lesser number. They moved through the desert and lived among the company of their camels. This experience of taking a camel into the desert is a good way to get an idea of the way that the Bedouins experience life. The environment is amazing, especially when the sun is setting and the mountains are adquiring their orange tones. Finally, you also get to try a real Beduoin dinner all complete with a fire, tea, and pita bread made from scratch with just flour and water. It adds tahini (sesame sauce), cheese ... and ready to recharge while darkens the desert and starts back, now under the stars. The tour we did with camel ranch (www1.camel-ranch.co.il) and within the tours that have ours was the two hour sunset camel tour (although it takes about four hours, but two are are being mounted riding).
This water park is located on the coral reef of Eilat. It has a huge natural pool, fully enclosed where Red Sea dolphins live. To snorkel or dive with dolphins is the main feature and attraction. In my case, I was trying to dive with them. The pool is so big that it takes a while to find them. Diving allows you to see them pass above, below and beside you. I think it may be more advisable to snorkel. They take pictures and videos of you swimming in the water as souvenirs. Moreover, the experience is more than worth it.
The Tel Aviv nightlife is fantastic. The city is full of bars that despite their exterior appearance, have an interior that combines the modern with the traditional elements.They have the great architecture of ancient sites with music, lights and cocktails which make it a great place to have a good night. The Breakfast Night Club is one of the most recommended by the locals, but if you do not want to complicate your stay by trying to get in on your own, you can contact guide ve took us there (via Facebook Igal Zeevi). He speaks Spanish and English.
Something you should not miss during your visit to Tel Aviv is a sunny morning on the Tel Aviv promenade. Here you must discover the people and enjoy the fine Mediterranean breeze while going for a walk or a bike ride.
