I am in awe of how beautiful this area looks. I am thinking of spending Sept in Loreto but want to know where the best shore snorkeling is? I plan to have a kayak so could also kayak over to areas. How far out are the Islands from shore? Is it safe to kayak out that way (lots of boats,strong currents ?) Also what area would you recommend a solo female stay in,I'm thinking of the Loreto bay area but would love to stay in town if there was a recommended safe place (with good snorkeling close by) Thanks for any help Deb
I have seen a lot of good comments for this place, but has any one been there recently and how is the wheather in may / june out there?
Planning to visit central Baja this february and am trying to decide if i should split my 8 days (or 7 days) between Loreto and La Paz or just Loreto. Planning to do a whale excursion - but mainly want to relax and get away from the NYC cold. I've read some positve comments about La Paz. I have no interest in visiting Cabo.
My fiance and I are going to spend a few days in late november (Thanksgiving holidays) in south baja, and we'res hesitating between Loreto, La paz, and San Jose Del Cabo.We really don't like resorts, and we don't like to be surrounded by throngs of US tourists and loud american discos (we simply hate the spring break atmosphere), but we do like to go out at night and mingle with locals and dance on nortena etc and walk in nice little streets etc... Basically, we're looking for a location with pretty sandy beaches/ coves, WARM WATER (even in november), NO WAVES, NO WIND... and more local color at night than... American color. How is Loreto area in late november ? Is the city "alive", even though small, or is there nothing to do if the weather is bad ? is the the sea pleasant to swim/ snorkel (without a diving suit) ? How bad can the weather get ? Are the beaches in the area exposed to cold winds ? And can we find lovely sandy beaches without buying a tour to one of the islands (we will rent a car) ? Or should we just go to San Jose del Cabo, to be sure to hahve hot weather/ warm water ? THANK YOU :)
We are considering a trip to Loreto in late July. Does anyone know what the weather is like this time of the year? I have read that other locations on the Pacific coast are hot and humid this time of year but I believe Loreto has a more desert-like climate. Thanks!!!
