Loreto is one of the oldest settlements in Baja California Sur as it is the location of the first Mission, the Church of Our Lady of Loreto. It is at the foothills of the Sierra de la Giganta mountain range and boasts some beautiful sandy coves and islands in the Sea of Cortés. Hiking, diving, sailing, kayaking, swimming, golf, whale-watching and sport fishing are some of the activities it offers. Early autumn is witness to three vibrant festivals filled with fun, family entertainment, sports, music and food.
