Discover the beauty of Loreto while relaxing in the tranquil ambiance of the indigo hued Sea of Cortez.  As the first capital of the Californias,  Loreto’s culture runs as deep as its rich history.  Loreto is a resort destination that has all the amenities of a bustling metropolis.

Enjoy world-class sport fishing and play golf and tennis at several different resorts and acclimate to the incredible outdoors of Loreto.  Flanked to the West by an enormous mountain range and to the East by the bristling Sea of Cortez, Loreto has it all.

Sailing, kayaking, diving, horseback riding, mountain biking, windsurfing, and beachcombing are all on the menu each and every day.  You can venture to the beautifully restored Mission of San Javier high up in the mountains behind Loreto with access to the mission by a recently completed paved road.

When your appetite has grown from a long day of playing under the warm rays of the Mexican sun, indulge in fresh cuisine perfected for over three hundred years.

Accommodations range from an all-inclusive resort on the beach to quaint boutique hotels and bed and breakfasts in town. XploreBaja uses Loreto as one of our three final destinations since Alaska Air provides scheduled air service from Los Angeles four days a week.

From Loreto we day trip from Bahía Concepción to Agua Verde all along the coast visiting some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.  Snorkeling is a must and XploreBaja provides gear throughout your entire trip.   Agua Verde is one of the yachting world’s destination locations where yachts from all over the world anchor for weeks on end enjoying the endeavors of the remote Baja Peninsula.  Swim among the dolphins and the azure blue waters with visibility up to 60-80 feet.  It’s just purely amazing!

Arriving to Loreto is bitter sweet as we ease back into the world of reality after days on end of enjoying the Mexican culture and seeing some of the most remote places Baja has to offer.

From Loreto you are returned to civilization and reality all within several hours as XploreBaja guests are whisked back to the United States via Alaska Air to Los Angeles International Airport.

Loreto is the gem of the Sea of Cortez.
