Loreto bungalow description

Relax in a quiet, friendly community within a small Mexican fishing village on the edge of the Sea of Cortez.

THE HOME
Casa #3 Loreto is an excellent family retreat. The home is very comfortable and fully equipped for your stay. Upper and lower bedrooms have king beds and adjoining bathrooms. The loft bedroom located over the kitchen area has two twin beds that can be can be made into a king bed. The balcony adjacent to the loft bedroom has a large table and four chairs and is our favorite spot to enjoy a cocktail while watching the sun set. Other features of Casa #3 Loreto include a water filtration system that purifies 100% of the water to the house to ensure safe drinking water and ice from the freezer for drinks. Our large fountain on the fully tiled patio provides a refreshing background sound as well as an attractive birdbath for the many local birds. The hummingbird feeders in the back yard are a big hit with the local hummingbirds. Our local property manager is available to provide assistance as needed and is easily reachable on the phone in the house. Please use the link below to see many more photos and learn more details about Casa #3 Loreto.

THE COMMUNITY
Our home is one of eighteen homes in Club El Palmar II. The central feature of this gated community is the 5-foot deep swimming pool with its crystal clear water in the center of the “U-shaped” complex and is about ten steps from the front door of Casa #3 Loreto. Please note that there is no lifeguard at this pool so parents must keep a close eye on their children. The pool is the gathering spot in Club El Palmar II where you can meet your neighbors and learn more about the area and interesting things to do while visiting Loreto. The residents and guests are generally English speaking, very friendly, and are eager to share their knowledge of the town.

THE TOWN
Loreto is a quaint Mexican fishing village on the Sea of Cortez (or Gulf of California if you prefer). The locals are EXTREMELY friendly and polite to all visitors. Tourism is the only industry in the region and visitors are made to feel very welcome. There is no crime, panhandling, drugs or violence, and the town is quite clean. Most of the streets are paved but some of the side streets have not yet been paved. The town is family-oriented and so the few nightspots are pretty tame.

From Club El Palmar II to the central shopping area near the Loreto Mission is a short three-block walk. In addition to shopping, Loreto offers excellent restaurants, and cafes. The most prominent landmark in Loreto is the Mission, built 1697, and is the first mission in all of California and remains in use today. Next to the Mission is a small museum that is worth visiting. From the Mission to the Malicon is about a four-block walk. The Malicon is a street next to the seawall and runs the length of the central portion of town. The marina is at the north end of the Malicon and is where you will go to meet the panga fishing boat and Captain if you arrange to take a fishing trip. By the way, the panga fishermen will clean the fish for you and just about any restaurant in town will cook your fish to order for a very reasonable price. A web search of Loreto BCS Mexico will result in many informative web sites.

THINGS TO DO
Fishing in Loreto is world-class. Although there are marlin and other bill fish in the waters, fin fish like Dorado (Mahi) and Yellowtail Tuna are generally the preferred catch. Other activities in the area include swimming, snorkeling, sea kayaking, horseback riding and sightseeing. Charter a private cruise on the luxury yacht EL DON to one of the many secluded beaches on any of the local islands like Isla Coronado, Isla Carmen, Isla Danzante, and many others. Multi-day private charters are also available. Otherwise, contact the Inn at Loreto Bay or the Mision Hotel in Loreto to see what activities they may be offering.

GETTING THERE
Loreto has a convenient international airport only five miles from town. Alaska Airlines offer non-stop one hour and 45 minutes flights from Los Angles International Airport (LAX) four days per week. In general, the easiest and most direct way to reach Loreto for the central and eastern portions of the US is to fly to LAX, spend the night near the airport, and then take a direct flight the next day from LAX to Loreto. Loreto can also be reached by car. The drive takes about eighteen hours from San Diego along scenic Highway 1. About ten hours after crossing the border you reach the town of Guerreo Negro. This is a good place to stop for the night and make the balance of the trip the following day. It is wise to drive during daylight hours since farm animals frequently stray onto the highway in remote areas at night. Additionally, having two adults awake while driving improves safety. Check with your insurance carrier about coverage for driving in Mexico. Otherwise, contact Vagabundos Del Mar for temporary auto insurance.

                          Year Purchased: 2000

                          About: Gary & Mel Noland have offered Casa #3 Loreto as a rental property since 2004. Many families have enjoyed staying in our home and learning about the Mexican culture in Baja.

                          Why Loreto:
                          Friendly people and easy connections by air with the US were the main reasons we selected Loreto to purchase a second home. The Sea of Cortez with its extensive marine life is wonderful for fishing or for enjoying aboard our yacht EL DON.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                          The relaxed pace of life, great food and wonderful weather and some of the nicest features of a vacation in Loreto. Since we have a home there, we have made many wonderful friends who make returning to Loreto just that much more special for us on every visit.
