Welcome to the historic town of Loreto. A place where you'll find historic buildings dotted with bright green plant life, exotic flowers bursting out of the concrete in fresh-fish taco stands, and the enchanting Mision de Loreto- a mission-style church that was built in 1697.
A burst of excitement has taken over the Baja-beauty of the Islands of Loreto. Travelers are discovering that this well-maintained village offers the best of both worlds for tourists who long to escape to an 'authentic-Mexico' with settings that take you back-in-time along with ocean activities that rival that of any other modern coastal city. For one, the Islands of Loreto boasts Mexico's largest marine preserve where dolphins, seals, turtles and sea lions all play in the sea. The underwater animal life alone rivals that of any world class aquarium. And for those who are partial to adventures on land; there is hiking, biking, and nature-tours that fill up a camera with pictures of radiant natural settings.
