Have a Baja Moment! Stay at a Romantic Vacation Rental in Nopolo or in Downtown Loreto.
Loreto was the first Spanish settlement in the Baja Peninsula. Once billed as the “Capital of the Californias,” today Loreto is a lovely town with well-preserved 18th and 19th century buildings, quiet cobblestone streets, museums, art galleries and a friendly population of close to 15,000 residents.
In Loreto, the crystalline waters of the Sea of Cortez bathe sandy beaches and inhabited islands while the impressive mountains of Sierra de la Giganta overlook the bay. Surrounded by this spectacular landscape, the sleepy town offers a unique combination of historic relevance, natural beauty and local flavor that has resulted in its recognition by the Mexican Tourism Board as one of Baja’s three Pueblo Magicos (Magical Towns).
The Loreto area doesn’t lack for excitement and adventure either. Visitors can choose from a wide variety of water-based activities such as diving, kayaking, snorkeling, sportfishing and whale watching, or opt for more relaxing pursuits, like a soothing walk on a secluded beach at sunset. The desert and mountains nearby also provide excellent activities options – hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking- and a visit to see some of the peninsula’s famous cave paintings can be an unforgettable experience.
And when it comes to accommodations, Loreto has something to suit every budget.
For instance, it’s hard beat the convenience and affordability and luxury of El Tiburon Casitas. This charming hotel boasts a perfect location on a quiet street in downtown Loreto, and it is within easy walking distance of the historic district and the malecon (marina boardwalk).
El Tiburon Casitas features four little Casita houses built around a central patio and sparkling Pool. The hotel reflects the laid-back style of the town, and is decorated with vibrant colors and Mexican arts and crafts. All units are fully furnished and have a kitchen, private bathroom and well-lighted spaces. Other room amenities include air-conditioning, ceiling fans, fresh linens and towels, as well as daily maid service. Complimentary WiFi, Phone calls, and Bikes.
Another great feature of the hotel are its outdoor spaces. The secluded courtyard has a huge palapa and a grill where you can prepare delicious meals for your loved one.
Stay at El Tiburon Casitas and stroll around town, plan a picnic on a nearby beach, or have a romantic dinner in one of the many fine restaurants downtown. The hotel’s amiable staff, convenient location and affordable rates makes it an outstanding option for budget-conscious travelers to Loreto.
