Awesome area, great views with sea/dessert contrast. Just be sure to ask for legal "almeja chocolata" in restaurants! Let's help preserve this beautiful ocean, home of the blue whale!

The VDP Loreto is surrounded by the National Park. We fished, snorkeled and toured the area via boats.

We stayed at the Hotel Santa Fe. It was clean, had a small kitchen, a patrolled parking lot, and was about $50 per night. Also the steak and seafood restaurant right next door was great.
