Why do people want flock to Loreto resorts and hotels? Located on the Sea of Cortez on the Baja Peninsula, laid back Loreto, Mexico, a city of 10,000 people, was founded in 1697 and was the first Spanish settlement in Baja. Numerous historic buildings, many dating from the 18th century, still stand, but today Loreto is best known as a sport fishing and diving eden, with clear, warm waters and an abundance of marlin, sailfish, dorado and sea bass. All of these ocean activities are available direct as part of most Loreto all inclusive vacation packages. Loreto beaches include:
San Bruno (to the North of town).
With amazingly blue waters to the east and the Sierra Madre to the west, Loreto is unspoiled and somewhat isolated, beckoning to those seeking a peaceful getaway without the crowds. Although it is not in the same class as some of Mexico’s larger and more famous resorts, Loreto has a rustic charm and quiet beauty all its own.
When booking a Loreto vacation package, consider staying at the Posada de las Flores, perhaps the town’s finest and most exclusive hotel
. Small (15 rooms) and intimate, the Posada de las Flores offers sumptuous Mexican hacienda décor, a glass bottom swimming pool on the roof terrace and two outstanding restaurants and bars. Guests who book all inclusive Loreto vacation packages at establishments such as this enjoy rooms with air conditioning, satellite TV, an in-room safety deposit box and all bathroom amenities. This Loreto hotel, as with most Loreto hotels and resorts, offers the European plan (room only), although an American breakfast is included in the price. A stay here will not disappoint.
Another of the Loreto hotels and resorts worth consideration is the Inn at Loreto Bay (formerly Camino Real), a 5-star hotel with 155 rooms along the beach. This Loreto resort also offers the European plan, and rooms feature air conditioning, traditional Mexican décor, a mini bar, an in-room safe and satellite TV. Nearly all units face the water and have sweeping sea views. This Loreto hotel has a secluded beach and offers the European plan.
The La Pinta / Desert Inn Hotel is another of Loreto hotels sure to charm. With just 48 rooms (all oceanfront), this 4-star resort offers the European plan and rooms with traditional Mexican décor, private patios and air conditioning. Guests also enjoy a swimming pool, a restaurant and bar.
When not fishing or diving
, visitors to Loreta may want to take advantage of the spectacular Loreto Bay Golf Club, an 18-hole, par 72 golf course that offers breathtaking ocean and mountain vistas. The Loreto Tennis Center, with eight courts, is also an option, as are hiking, kayaking and bicycling.
