Over the past 30 years I have stayed in a lot of all-inclusive hotels in many parts of the world. I can say, without a doubt, that my stay in Villa del Palmar in Loreto has been by far the most enjoyable. This hotel is small (180 rooms) so that if one asks for room service or a repair it... More

We used Rammses for a tour of the sea lion Island. I had the experience of a lifetime as I slid off the boat and snorkeled with them A warning form a sea lion told me it was time to head back as the babies were around

I want to come back and stay here to get a closer look at the marine life, maybe from a boat. Nice warm water. Enjoyed watching the many pelicans diving.

uncrowded, very pretty! Have to take a boat to get there however, but worth it!. Go during whale season.

For $100 per boat(up to 6 people), we were taken on a 5-hour tour to Coronado Island(about 45 minutes away) to see nesting blue boobie birds, snorkel with big colorful fish, eat a picnic lunch we brought on a dazzling white-sand beach with turquoise water, and swim with sea lions as they jumped in and dove right under us.

Have a local take you out to Coronado Island, sea lions, birds, mantas, tons of fish for snorkeling. Take a picnic lunch and plenty of sunscreen.

Fairly strenuous 3-day, two-night kayak adventure, unforgettable! Our guides Antonio, Daniel, and Valente were knowledgeable, amble, hard-working, and great chefs! Highly recommend this trip.

This was one of the most beautiful places we've ever seen. The water was so clear and beautiful. The snorkeling was great and the trip there allowed us the opportunity to see hundreds of dolphins frolicking alongside our boat. Breathtaking and highly recommended!!

A group of stunningly beautiful islands off the coast of Baja Sur. Great for camping, snorkeling, whale watching, fishing, kayaking.

Francisco Davis (his great grandpa was an English expat) is a knowledgeable pangero who speaks both English and Italian. He took us out to see (brace yourselves) sea lions, manta rays, adolescent dolphins, and blue whales - the largest creatures to have ever lived on earth. Special note: Blue whales are rather shy, so some visitors have taken to bringing... More
