Loreto Introduction

Tracing its roots to the 1600s, Loreto charms vacationers with cobblestone streets, lush palms, and historic buildings draped in hot pink bougainvillea vines. It's perched on the Baja Peninsula and has been crowned a Pueblo Magico, an honor granted to Mexican towns that promise a "magical" experience, by virtue of history, culture, and natural beauty. A pair of 17th-century missions offers a fascinating glimpse of the Jesuit movement, while easy access to Parque Nacional Bahía de Loreto makes the town a magnet for outdoor lovers.

Things to see

As the first Spanish settlement on the Baja Peninsula, Loreto cradles a treasure trove of historic architecture. In the town center, the 17th-century Misión de Nuestra Señora de Loreto Conchó offers a glimpse of the Jesuit movement. An easy day trip out of town, Misión San Francisco Javier de Viggé-Biaundó is also a beautifully preserved complex framed by lush palms and rugged mountains. Loreto is ideal, not just for lazy days strolling around the historic center, but also as a gateway to Parque Nacional Bahía de Loreto, a wonderland of turquoise water and offshore islands. Spend the day sea kayaking, standup paddle boarding, and snorkeling with seals around the colorful reefs of Coronado Island. The Sea of Cortez offers a unique chance to spot both gray whales and majestic blue whales, the largest animals on the planet. After a day in the sun, refuel at one of Loreto's tempting eateries, from upscale restaurants to traditional taquerias.
