With Loreto's neighboring islands, there are many white sand beaches and coves waiting to be explored. Fishing, kayaking, diving, snorkeling, boating, and whale watching are some of the great activities Loreto has to offer. On Loreto's picturesque beachfronts try a horseback outing or explore the high mountain desert on a mule ride following the old traditional trails to remote ranches. Visit Primer Agua, just south of Loreto on a desert road and embark on a hike, a mountain bike trek or just relax under the palms in this old Indian oasis. Mission San Javier is also a destination for many of Loreto's visitors. Known as one of the most beautiful and preserved Spanish missions, the gravel road will take you through lush mountain canyons where the view of the Sea of Cortez is breathtaking. The 23 mile drive on a narrow, mountain road can be rough, but well worth the trip! Just north of Loreto , the beautiful quaint town of Mulege is a great day trip. Arrange a guided trip to the cave paintings and petroglyphs in nearby Guadalupe Mountains and visit the town's hilltop mission. The drive along spectacular Bahia Concepcion from Loreto to Mulege has numerous turnouts to beautiful white sand beaches.

The town of Loreto is easily explored on foot. The historic mission and museum are located in the town's plaza area. The museum has a excellent collection of religious and historic artifacts that date back to the early colonial days. Wander the cobblestone streets and visit the "curios" shops and treat yourself to a scrumptious plate of local seafood and a cold "cerveza" in one of the numerous open air restaurants. Sukasa is located 3 blocks from the plaza. Stroll Loreto's mile long waterfront walk way or "malecon" and enjoy a a gentle sea breeze while taking in the spectacular view of Carmen Island.


The staff at Sukasa will be happy to assist you or arrange the activities of your choice.
