What it's Like to Retire in Loreto

Loreto is located in the North Eastern región of the state of Baja California Sur, about 350 km North of La Paz.  This is a calm tranquil paradise blanketed in natural wonders like the Marine park  and surrounded by a small number of islands, which make Loreto an ideal place to retire, for those people that love aquatic sports like snorkeling, fishing, and scuba diving.

Loreto's splendid weather and spectacular scenery are closer than you think. Just an hour or two by air from most cities in northern Mexico and two to four hours from the most important cities in the US, paradise is nearer than you ever imagined.

As you stroll through the area, you come to know its history. Loreto was the first Spanish town in the Baja California Peninsula, site of the first mission capital of the Californias founded in 1697 by Jesuit priest Juan Maria Salvatierra. In the Jesuit Missions Museum, you can browse through a collection of 17th and 18th century religious art, tools and antique firearms used in Baja California's Spanish missions.

You can also find cave art carved into the walls and rocks of the majestic Sierra de la Giganta, part of which has been designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO.
