Recent Loreto property reviews

  • A little bit of paradise

    "My husband and I rented the casita on the beach from 5/1/14-5/9/14. The home is beautiful! Our little casita was at the back of the home; the beach and patio were accessed thru a lovely shaded breezeway. The casita was comfortable with a large fridge; freezer; gas range/oven and plenty of storage. The picture above doesn't due justice to the awesome ocean and island views. We spent most of our time on the patio which had a table; chairs; 2 lounge chairs & a shaded sitting area with outdoor ceiling fans. The neighborhood is quite and the neighbors are friendly and made us feel right at home. My husband and I have been to Mazatlan and other locations in Mexico but Loreto is by far our absolute favorite. The people of Loreto are so friendly and nice; people actually wave at you as you are driving down the street. The square is a must see with many great restaurants. We will definitely go back and stay at the casita again! We had the best accommodations in Loreto and highly recommend the casita."

  • Satellite TV Included Superbowl!

    "Arriving from Seattle on Superbowl afternoon, we were frantic to locate a venue showing our big Seahawks game. Luckily, Casa Grace is so complete in every way that we enjoyed the big game on the home's own satellite system! This lovely, spacious beach home is so well equipped that all we really needed was groceries which were easily available at Loreto's two supermarkets: El Pescador and Ley (with a new 24 hour store under construction between those two on Calle Independencia. Ask the on-site manager Ismael for help in contacting Rodrigo Davis D., our terrific fishing, snorkeling, whale watching guide. A car is really necessary to fully enjoy the region's canyon hikes, restaurants and San Javier Mission. Choose Europcar to avoid last minute surprise insurance assessments."

  • Living in style!

    "This property is absolutely beautiful, we were very happy with our stay in Loreto because we definitely chose the best house, the pictures do it no justice. There were 2 couples and child in our party and we all had great privacy. I would definitely stay at this property again and my daughter and boyfriend absolutely fell in love with place. The place was very clean and has all the amenities of home and then some. Steps away from the beach and hotel which made it all the more convenient. Absolutely loves it!!!"

  • Will definitely return and recommend to others

    "My husband and I just returned from our first trip to Loreto. We are so glad we selected Barbara and Al's place---they made us feel like we were old friends coming to visit rather than paying guests. So kind and friendly and helpful, just like the reviews say; Al took us on a quick tour of the small town pointing out the places we needed to know about and called "Francisco," a panga captain, to arrange our whale watching on the Sea of Cortez for us. And yes, "Suerte," their beautiful kitty, was icing on the cake, adopting us as his beloveds for our stay. And Barbara introduced us to her new cocker spaniel pup. The apartment was absolutely lovely and comfortable; so nice to be on the waterfront and walk the beach in the evenings after our days on the water, communing with the whales and the incredible wild life here. We stroked the grays in Magdalena Bay, saw more Blue whales than you can shake a stick at, not to mention the dolphin, pelicans, frigates, blue footed boobies, osprey, herons, sharks, rays, seals, roadrunners, and . . . and . . . A wildlife lover's delight and this apartment is the perfect place from which to venture out and explore. Will definitely be back and have already recommended this casita to friends. Thanks so much for a truly magical stay, Barbara and Al. Hugs and pets to Suerte and the pups. Gary and Rebecca"

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.
