  • Christmas in Loreto

    "My family had the good fortune to stay in Loreto Bay for two weeks during Christmas. What an Oasis of beauty and tranquility. It is perfect for two couples, with similar guest suites on two levels. Furnishings and amenities are without equal. The kitchen has anything you need to make a gourmet meal. That is, if you are not frequenting one of the restaurants in the area. A vendor comes on Saturday's, with fresh fish and shrimp and they are in the process of opening a small market. Both the locals and the guests are very helpful and eager for you to have a wonderful visit. We would love to go again."

  • Peaceful, spacious, relaxing... true vacation!

    "My friend's family with a 5-year-old daughter and I stayed at this spacious, fully furnished one-bedroom condo with private rooftop patio for 3 nights in late March 2014. The unit is on the third floor, thus a better view; but nothing tops the private patio area where you can just lounge and gaze at the vast mountain range, or setup a romantic dinner while viewing the sun sets over Loreto bay. The room itself is so spacious, tastefully decorated with local artisan crafts, clean and well circulated. The unit comes with washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen where we made our smoothie every morning & pasta for dinner. The community where this condo is a part of is so pretty and peaceful that a walk around in the morning and evening is something you have to include in your day activities. They even have a coffee shop and a few restaurants. Punta Nopolo is only 10 minute drive from all the actions in Loreto. We'll definitely stay here if we return to Loreto area again."

  • Absolutely Beautiful Villa

    "We were a group of 5 ladies traveling to Loreto for the first time, we were a little nervous because we drove from L.A. but after 17 hours driving we were very tire and finally when we got to this AMAZING HOME we were very Impressed, Beautiful Villa and sooo Big, We had everything we need to cook and to be conformable, The owner is very organized and she gave me all the instructions and all the details about the place. Loreto is really a Magic Town, Founders Neighborhood is a Paradise we were so relaxing, We really enjoyed it, every body was so nice,the views from the terraces are stunning, We went to Isla Cornado, we saw Dolphins, Sealions, Stingrays, and the water is so clear that you can see everything from the Panga. We were in Love with this place, we will come back for sure!"

  • nice

    "We stayed with Bob for 5 nights. Fairly quiet downstairs apartment. master bedroom looks right out on beach and sunrise over an island in the gulf. East facing patio is pretty comfortable all day long. Landlord lives upstairs. Older furnishings, some not always working right, but very responsive to concerns, very helpful with suggestions, loan of Kayak, dvd movies, etc. We enjoyed ourselves a lot. Walked everywhere, 15 min to town, 2.5 miles south on basically an empty beach. Unfortunately not real good snorkeling out front, but easily swimmable if one wanted to. Mosquitos were an issue at dawn and after 5 pm- recent rains. apparently only a problem in the fall. Bring repellant from US- Mexican is not real good. Would recommend this property."

Loreto Travel Tips

Traveling to Loreto Vacation Rentals

Loreto International Airport receives regular commercial flights from North America. Most of these flights route via Los Angeles, Phoenix, or Las Vegas. Regional airlines have connections from Mexico and other South American countries. Once in Loreto, you can hire a car to get to your vacation home or make use of the local taxi service. Many visitors from southern California prefer to drive down to Loreto. The city is located approximately 750 miles south of the Mexican border from San Diego. There is a good quality highway; traveling at normal speed limits, the drive should take around 12 to 13 hours. It’s advisable to plan two days for traveling so you can stop and enjoy some of the sights along the way.

Visitors to Loreto Vacation Houses

Because of its great climate and many attractions, Loreto is a popular family vacation destination. Each day could be filled with a different activity as you explore the coastline. Alternatively, you can choose to relax at the pool or on the beach and simply soak up the sun. Your vacation can be as busy or as relaxed as you like. Deep sea fishing tournaments are held throughout the year and attract a large number of anglers from all over the world. Loreto also has a rich cultural heritage and those interested in history can enjoy visiting the local museums and historical sites.

Seasons to Visit Loreto Resorts

Loreto is located on the Baja California peninsula in Mexico just north of the tropics. The weather is characteristically warm all year-round with some rainfall occurring in the summer months. Because of this, there is generally a high level of humidity which sometimes make the daytime temperatures feel even hotter. Average summer temperatures are between 74 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. The summer months are considered to run from June to October. The only weather caution for Loreto is that it falls within the Pacific hurricane belt. Tropical storms occur seasonally between June and December. The winter and autumn months tend to be windy and spring has a nice moderate climate.

Attractions and Things to Do in Loreto

Shopping is a wonderful experience in Loreto. Handmade crafts and art can be found at the markets and boutique shops. Choose from silver jewelry, blown glass, ceramics and wood carvings, ornate lamps stands and fine textiles. Feel free to bargain with the craftsmen and women as this is part of the local culture.

The many water-based adventures available include scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, deep sea fishing, and whale watching. Local charter companies have boats available for hire and are generally willing to accept private charter requests. Enjoy a morning of scuba diving followed by a leisurely lunch and cruise along the coastline. Alternatively, you can head out in the early morning with your rod in hand and try catching a big one on a game fishing charter.

For the adventurous type of explorer, there are numerous hiking and mountain biking trails in the region. Hire a bike and buy a map to explore independently or join a guided group departure. The region also has some unique cave paintings that can be viewed as part of a guided tour.

Culture enthusiasts can enjoy visiting the beautifully restored San Javier Mission which is located high up in the hills behind Loreto. There are several buildings in Loreto that are historical monuments. The Mission of Our Lady of Loreto is a monument that marks the start of the royal road. This route runs up the coast to Sonoma in the U.S. and describes the route of the Spanish Missions.
