Oreto and La Paz or just Loreto?

by marktynernyc

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.

If you are interesting in whales, you would certainly like the kayak tours available to snorkle around sea lions and such on the pristine islands out of La Paz.
It's a nice town, pretty laid back for a city. I'd recommend it. It's an easy day drive from Loreto.

i'd split my time between the two

Oreto and La Paz or just Loreto?

by marktynernyc

thanks for the replies. Does anyone know how long the bus ride is from La Paz to Loreto?

Like I say, most of a day.

The hotel I'm thinking of staying at said it was about 5 hours - that's a long bus ride after 10 hrs of air flight - I'm thinking of just staying in La Paz now and doing a couple ecursions besides just the whales - isla espirato, etc. Once again - thanks.

Not a bad idea. There are also excursions to see old cave paintings and desert stuff.

Be sure to see the museum/library in the main square downtown. There is a whale skeleton out back.



If you get bored, you can always grab a bus to Loreto just for the change.

I just returned from a Loreto/La Paz/Cabo vacation. I recommend going to both Loreto and La Paz. Loreto was the most relaxing and enjoyable part of our trip. If you are a fan of outdoor sports such as kayaking, snorkeling or fishing, you will not want for things to do! Plus there is much to do around the Loreto area. We liked La Paz as well. La Paz is more of a "city" with a tourist area, but it sure ain't Cabo.

The bus from Loreto is 4.5 hours. If memory serves, the buses leave Loreto for La Paz at 8 am and 10 am, with three scheduled buses in the afternoon that "don't always go," whatever that means. Check with the bus station, which is on the west end of Loreto. It's about a 10-minute walk from the town center.

Check out my Loreto and La Paz travel pages! We spent more time in Loreto than La Paz but you might benefit from some of the tips. Have fun!

Travel Tips for Loreto

The Customs House

by Agraichen

Located on a small side street next to the university gym, is a small house that his half hidden by a fence. It is the customs location in Loreto and if you are trying to get an FM3 visa, you will become familiar with this location.

Construction in Mexico

by Agraichen

Loreto has a great history that is changing with the times. Construction of tourist villas and hotels has finally arrived. The area of Nopolo, 9 KM south of Loreto was targeted by the Mexican tourism board Fonatur, 20+ years ago for the building of resorts. Fonatur put in roads and some infrastructure but the area never really "took off" the way Cabo San Lucas, Ixtapa, Cancun did.

In the early 2000's Loreto Bay was "rediscovered" and construction of "village homes" and relatively low condo complexes (none more than 5-6 stories) began to appear.

For people that are constructing in Loreto Bay (Nopolo) and can not be on site to supervise personally, I'd suggest doing what I did. Hire The Construction Coach. TCC has experienced construction engineers that are in Loreto full time and have programs in place to monitor and report on the construction progress.

They perform excellent monitoring of your property and send not only a written report but photos as well to back up their findings. Snorkeling in clear water to see the amazing diverse marine life that is within 20 feet of the beach. Move out to 100 yards and it just gets better.

Off shore near the islands in Loreto Bay and you get treated to sea lions, whales (in season) and even Whale Sharks. A fantastic voyage.

Vidrio y Aluminio Medina

by Agraichen

This shop carries aluminum and glass. The install windows and doors or make picture frames and cut the glass for all to the size you need.

I needed a replacement pane of custom glass for an exterior light. I brought in the chipped piece and in my broken Spanish and his broken English we figured that he could have the two panes cut to size in about 2 minutes. It took even less. Juan Manuel Medina's shop is great. Excellent service, excellent product and very reasonably priced. Email: vdrieramedina@hotmail.com

My three panes of custom cut glass cost me 15 pesos.. About $1.20 or so US. I'll be back to have some pictures framed.

The shop is located on Benito Juarez at the corner of Vicente Guerrero.

A real bakery - PanOli

by Agraichen

Loreto now has a great bakery. PanOli opened in late 2010 in a small shop on Benito Juarez. They make fresh breads and pasteries daily. The Chef, Fabian Lopez Bonzi turns out excellent products.

I've tried their regular bread, focaccio so far and it was excellent.

Desert dress

by Agraichen

Use Carry-on as much as possible. Light weight "travel clothes" will get you by most anywhere in the desert. But carry a light jacket as the desert does get cold at night, especially during winter months. sun screen, sun screen, sun screen...oh, and did I mention sun screen? The sun may not feel very hot, but it will "fry" you quite quickly. Always carry a camera. I normally pack about 40 pounds of bodies and lens, but never leave home without a small "point and shoot" digital.
