Activities in Loreto
Loreto, a magical town, is considered to be the first human settlement in Baja California Sur. There, in the Sierra de San Francisco, you can see some extraordinary paintings and petroglyphs dating back at least a thousand years; it's like traveling back in time. Additionally, these murals have been considered by UNESCO for special protection.
Loreto is impressive for many reasons. It seems to be a place where only the luckiest live. It preserves the tradition of a fishing village, isolated and yet you'll be amazed how easy it is to get to this almost secret location. The Sea of Cortez and the Sierra de la Giganta have been witnesses to this town's history and you can enjoy it by soaking in the crystal-clear waters at the beach or by visiting Isla Danzante or Isla Colorado. You may also see whales here. Numerous activities are waiting for you, such as kayaking, diving, snorkeling, hiking and fishing.
