  • The Perfect Baja House

    "A relaxing destination as well as a great launch pad. We used the house for a week of spear fishing with a day or two of getting our feet tangled in the hammock. It was perfect. I think the fishing speaks for itself. The house has tons of beds, bathrooms and space with a big kitchen to boot. One of the best parts of the place is the seemingly private bay which has a natural hot-spring tub, cliffs for jumping, and reefs for snorkeling. But the best part was waking up in the morning and watching the sun greet the few sailboats anchored in the bay. It was truly spectacular. I cant wait to go back"

  • Wonderful stay!

    "Beautiful condo, ideally situated for day adventures, and lovely to come home to. We are a family of 4, and had plenty of room, also using the pull out couch for a sleeping option, but 2 bedrooms are spacious. Very well maintained and situated in the beautiful community of Loreto Bay. For lap swimmers, there is a fantastic outdoor lap pool in the community. It was close enough to the airport and Loreto to make grocery shopping easy, and also access to the sea of cortez excursions very easy as well. Overall a wonderful place! We will definately be going back, and would highly recommend this rental!!"

  • Great spot, great city = great trip!

    "We had an amazing trip to Loreto! The condo was clean, nice and had all the amenities we needed. You could just walk across the street to the beach and we had views of the ocean from our patio. We saw both sunrise, sunset and full moon. We would recommend this to a family member or friend to stay and enjoy. We did use the kitchen quite often making lunches and dinners and wonderful margaritas! But we did go out on the town as well, there was a big pig fest one of the weekends we were there (that was really fun). Some of the restaurants we ate at were: Domingo's Steakhouse Orlando's - good margs and breakfast Mission Hotel - margs/guac/salsa/chips Hotel Oasis La Picazon - dirt road down a bit, good margs and seabass wrap El Taco Del Ray - nothing fancy but great tacos Augies - good happy hour and lots of gringos For adventure: Took the snorkeling trip out to Coronado Island - saw whales, dolphins, seals, white sand beach, lunch and snorkeled Full Moon! Trip to the Pacific Bay - Magdalena Bay to touch the whales and hiked up the sand dunes Headed north to Scorpian Bay quiet town where there is normally surfing but no swells those days GREAT TIME!"

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.
