The Baja Peninsula

An Exotic Destination- Right in Our Backyard

So remote, yet so close.  Without leaving the North American continent, Baja and the Sea of Cortez awaits. Just a short flight from San Diego, you are in the heart of the Baja peninsula. This region is well known to some, but remains an unexplored and mysterious place to many of us. 

Surprising to many, this area is rich with historical significance.  The missions started here.  Noted explorers and writers have been impressed by what they discovered here. 

Still, the terrain remains pretty much the same as it was years ago.  There are few roads outside of the metropolitan areas, and even though there is a significant coastline, much of it is inaccessible by car, and only a few areas are accessible by boat.

Why the Sea of Cortez?

Mexico's Best Kept Secret

Famous for being home to some of the world's best whale watching and sport fishing, the Sea of Cortez is much more. Up-close encounters with marine life above and below the sea, to world class sailing, this is one of the most dramatic places on earth.

The Sea of Cortez boasts hundreds of types of marine life, some found only in this area, and others that migrate annually such as sea turtles, Humboldt squid, manta rays and blue whales. Depending on the time of year, you will find and abundance of different animals and weather conditions. Scuba divers enjoy the summertime when the water is clear and warm.  Whale watchers typical frequent during winter migration months.

Loreto -B.C.S.

This is the Mexico You Only Read About

Untainted by developers and with the charm of a small town, Loreto is a significant historical center in all of Baja. One of Mexico's "Pueblos Magicos", Loreto has only one traffic light whether needed or not, and visitors and residents alike enjoy the casual friendly lifestyle that is now lost in other parts of Mexico.  

Served by an international airport, it is surprising that Loreto is still undiscovered, but it is not surprising that Loreto is home to a number of full and part time residents from the United States and Canada.  As the gateway to the National Marine Park, the local economy is supported by tourism, not spoiled by it. 

Complete with a regional hospital, a University and a wealth of local history, Loreto is not a dusty stopover, but is a little gem on the coast of one of the most rugged and remote peninsulas in North America.

Marina Puerto Escondido

A Great Place to Call Home

We are proud to have Marina Puerto Escondido (MPE) as our home port. Ideally located, and one of the few protected ports in the Sea of Cortez, it was an obvious choice.

 

Just a few miles south of the Loreto town center and just minutes from the airport, the marina enjoys privacy, security and convenience.  Located within the boundaries of the Loreto Bahia Parque Nacional (Loreto Bay National Marine Park),  MPE maintains the highest standards of environmental awareness with an ambitious and successful effort to preserve the natural habitat and marine environments surrounding the area. 

Another great natural feature of Puerto Escondido, is that with almost 360 degree protection, it is a natural hurricane hole.
