Tired of the hustle and bustle of Cabo
and ready for something a little more relaxed and low-key on your next trip to Baja California?? Look no further than the quaint community of Loreto Bay. This small town allows for a different type of vacation to Mexico
- one all about the little things. Between the convenient location, sleepy atmosphere, and stunning natural beauty, our vacation rentals in Loreto Bay are just waiting for you to come make lasting memories.
Where is Loreto Bay?
Good news if you're arriving by plane - Loreto Bay is only seven miles south of Loreto International Airport. As you drive to your quaint vacation rental, roll down the window and admire the scenery. Unlike the flat desert plains of Cabo to the south, the Loreto Bay area in central Baja California is hillier, with rolling foothills dotted with shrubs and cacti contrasting nicely with the shining blue of the ocean in the distance.
Things to Do in Loreto Bay
The tiny community of Loreto Bay lacks the exciting nightclubs of Cabo, instead offering visitors a chance to take a breather and simply relax in this quiet fishing village. Start your day by admiring the views of the bay to the east and mountains to the west. Step outside and breathe in some fresh ocean air as you take a stroll through town, stopping by the lone wine bar, Wine Cellar @ Nopolo, to pick up a bottle to go with the groceries from the lone store in town.
Simple days just taking in the peaceful, rustic atmosphere are lovely for adults in search of a break, but thanks to the abundance of activities, kids are sure to love Loreto Bay too! On hot summer days, be sure to stop by one of the two shared swimming pools to beat the heat. You can also head down to the beach - stretch out on your favorite towel over the dark, warm sand and watch the kids play as the surf gently rolls in, or rent a kayak or paddleboard and do a little exploring of your own!
Other Nearby Attractions
One of the most obvious destinations from Loreto Bay is the town of Loreto just to the north. On top of offering its own beaches to explore - alongside a comparatively bustling marina - the town is rich in historical attractions. The ancient Mision Nuestra Senora de Loreto still stands for visitors to explore, with a nearby museum that further elaborates on its history. Don't forget about golfing - Club de Golf Loreto and Loreto Baja Golf Course are both nice stops on the way back home!
Don't settle for anything less than the privacy and convenience that our Loreto Bay vacation rentals the next time you come to Mexico. You'll immediately wonder how you did it any other way.
