Loreto - the oldest town in Baja California greets visitors with unspoiled beaches, the azure Sea of Cortez – and world-class big game fishing. Surrounded by the magnificent Sierra de la Giganta mountain range and the spectacular desert, the waters in and around Loreto are considered by many as the world's finest big game fishing area. Though there are literally thousands of different fish species in the Sea of Cortez, most fishermen come for the abundance and great size of Sailfish, Marlin, Dorado, Yellowfin Tuna, Yellowtail and Roosterfish. The tranquil setting of the unspoiled town combines with an excellent choice of hotel accommodations to create the perfect Oasis for a weekend getaway. With new flights direct from San Diego just in time for the peak fishing season, look for an abundance of Cabrilla, Grouper, Sierra, Snappers – and prime Dorado & Yellowtail.
Loreto offers a wide variety of accommodations. La Pinta Hotel is located on a stretch of beach in the heart of town at the north end of the Malecon boardwalk – walking distance to all. The Hacienda Suites combines colonial Mexican ambiance with modern amenities, “La Molienda Bar” (home to the “biggest Margarita”), and the Rancho Viejo restaurant – famous for Mama Chanta’s Smoked Tuna Pasta. There is also the Hotel Oasis and Posada de Las Flores and for the more discriminate traveler there are luxury hotels like the Loreto Baja Resort and Villa del Palmar Loreto which offers deluxe furnishings, full amenities and optional plans with meals and drinks.
