Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.”
Sheltered by the Sea of Cortez on one of Baja’s last virgin coastlines, Danzante Bay is a pure and peaceful oasis, an uncrowded retreat where your options are as vast as your views. Gulls glide on salt-scented breezes over ochre cliffs and wind-carved canyons. Dolphins dance through indigo waters. Join them.
The Marine Park
The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”
A UNESCO World Heritage site, the Bay of Loreto National Park covers 2,065 square kilometers (797 square miles) and includes the islands of Danzante, Del Carmen, Monserrat, Santa Catalina, and Coronado. Called “the world’s aquarium” by Jacques Cousteau, it is home to more than 850 species and supports the largest and most diverse population of whales in the world. The protected waters of the bay are calm, allowing for naps on paddle boards and peaceful wades with little ones.
Town of Loreto
Culturally rich and surrounded by lots of protected land and water, Loreto is undeniably special. There’s a sweetness here, and an authentic energy. The oldest Spanish colony in the Californias, it was founded on orders from the Spanish king by Jesuit missionaries in 1697. Now it’s home to 15,000 happy, hospitable residents and savvy visitors who discover the best places decades before anyone else. Here, the original mission church still stands in the historic central square. Music drifts along cobblestone streets leading visitors to small shops that overflow with local arts and to restaurants that burst with the bright flavors of mouthwatering Mexican cuisine.
