Loreto is a place that encourages you to commune with nature, play water sports and take the Baja 1000 route in search of whales, cave paintings and colonial missions. Because of its climate, infrastructure and relative isolation, it is also ideal for resting and forgetting about the pressures of everyday life.
And it is precisely this long isolation that preserved Loreto's unusual attractions such as its beaches, clean sea and sky, fragile environmental marine and semi-desert niches that have subsisted and provide refuge for endangered species. From an urban point of view, Loreto is remarkable for the contrasts between its colonial heritage, the advance of modernization and the fact that it has managed to preserve the simple, friendly, cheerful atmosphere of small communities.
Loreto was once the capital of a piece of territory stretching from California to Texas that included Sonora, Sinaloa and Coahuila. Nowadays it is the heart of a natural paradise known as the Sea of CortÚs.
