For 300 years, Loreto remained one of Mexico’s treasured secrets. Sitting peacefully on the shores of the Sea of Cortes, hidden beneath the Sierra de la Giganta mountains, only a few visitors were lucky enough to discover this little jewel of Baja. But once you visit a place like Loreto you can’t keep it to yourself, and now the secret is out.
When you first see Loreto, it is truly breathtaking. A culturally rich, historic village that sits on the shores of the Sea of Cortes, tucked away in the shadow of the Sierra de la Giganta mountains, Loreto’s natural beauty is undeniable.
Loreto was designated by FONATUR, Mexico’s tourism development division, as one of a handful of places in Mexico with the potential to become a world-class tourism destination. The sunny climate, the warm sea you can swim in year-round, the world-class sport fishing, diving, kayaking, whale-watching, hiking and golf make it the ideal place for an adventure-filled or laid back getaway.
