Where is Loreto Mexico

This almost hidding jewell of the baja peninsula sur, is located in the south side of the Baja, right in the Mar de Cortez (Sea of Cortez), as many people may know, it is called the World´s Acuarium because the huge marine life it has, one of the largest and richest where it is easy to see dolphins, whales since it is one of their prefered spots year after year. It is a 4 to 6 Hour drive north from La Paz and 8 hour from Los Cabos

It once was the most important city in the Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula and the Gulf of California in the colonial times wich many remanents still in the city as the Mision Señora de Loreto but still this region has some remannents of prehistoric cave paintings in the awesome and always beautiful Sierra de la Giganta, it´s closest Mountain Range.

Actually it´s location plays an important role in the tourist industry, besides it has a small airport with direct flights from some major airlines, it has conectivity to some major airports in the country but it is limited, you can get there by road but that implies some hours driving that i am sure you don´t have problem with that and there are bus traveling north and south. There is a Marina at Puerto Escondido in Baja California Sur not the one in Oaxaca state, so you can arrive by sea too.

Where to stay

There is a small town but has a few Resorts so you can sit and relax by the pool, being away from major cities gives this place a much more relaxing vibe, many Hollywood and Rockstars like to spend a few days here without worrying about the big crowds and papparazzis.

There are some Hotels, Boutique Hotels, Bungalows, Cabañas and Inns just check wich one you like.

What to do

Let´s start with the Marine National Park, boat tours for snorkel, scuba diving or just taking a trip to the islands to watch the marine life that surrounds it, sounds like the best idea. Sportfishing is one of the main activities too. There are some Golf Courses you can still practice your swing while on vacations.

Some hiking and horseriding tours are available, excursions to the Cave Paintings in the Sierra de la Giganta and the Mission of San Francisco, and don´t forget to do some beach hopping, ask the locals, you´ll be surprised.
