Indulge in the luxury of a paradise resort town

Founded in 1697 by Jesuit missionaries, Loreto was the first Spanish settlement on the Baja California Peninsula, and served as the capital of Las Californias from 1697 to 1777. Since that time, Loreto has transformed itself into a paradise resort town, as famous for its world-class sport fishing, scuba diving, and snorkeling as the indigo-hued waters of its bordering Sea of Cortez.

With year-round temperatures averaging in the 80s, outdoor activities like mountain biking and beachcombing are always plentiful, while tours of the restored Mission of San Javier and the Loreto Bay National Marine Park are definitely recommended.

To make the most of our two-day stay here, visit the Mission the first day, and then the next day enjoy fantastic whale watching at San Carlos at Magdalena Bay. At night, explore the charming town and its vibrant nightlife.
