loreto, baja california sur
Loreto, Mexico is an incredible place. Before my in laws bought their place there, I’d never even heard of it. But man am I ever glad they introduced us. Loreto is located on the Baja peninsula and boasts mountains on one side and the Sea of Cortez on the other. The climate is desert and arid so it doesn’t get humid or muggy, it’s just perfect. The only real downside is that it is literally across the continent from Ottawa with a time change of three hours and a 9 hour transit time. So you can’t exactly just go for a weekend.
The picturesque downtown runs along the Sea of Cortez. It’s hard not to get a little picture happy.
Both times we’ve visited, we stayed at my in-laws place in the community of Loreto Bay. It’s a gorgeous golf course community with both ocean and mountain views. Walking through the neighbourhood sometimes feels like you’re in a Spanish village.
I already can’t wait to go back.
