So you're taking your family to Loreto. Your idea of a perfect day is to hire a panga and go catch dorado, cabrilla and yellowtail...But your significant other and your kids want to go to a beautiful, white sandy beach and have a picnic and explore the flora and fauna of a fascinating, volcanic island....Es una problema,amigo! Never fear!!! You... More

I couldn't believe the water was more warm and more clear than Hawaii!! The fish were unbelievable. Great snorkeling, easy entry and exit. Too many mosquitoes after the hurricanes, but other than that, it was fantastic! Bring drinks and food so your trip will be even more satisfying.

Had a wonderful experience learning how to scuba dive with Frank from Dazante Tours. Beautiful conditions, beaches, and clean waters.

Take a tour - go snorkeling - spend a beautiful day! Check if your tour includes plenty of water/drinks and or lunch. Ours did and we noticed other folks were not so lucky.

We circumnavigated Coronados, Carmen, Danzante and Monserrat. The geology is awesome! The water is warm! One is paddling in the desert, with cardon cactus on the shore....and the desert, this Fall, is green after the hurricane rains. There were whales, dolphins, sea lions, leaping rays and colourful fish observed while snorkelling.

We've taken two snorkle trips to this area. October 2013 we had the BEST snorkle trip ever. The water was crystal clear and there were tons of of big beautiful fish all around us. Our second trip in October of 2014 didn't have as great of a snorkle due to some recent storms but our captain still made sure we... More

I see that Danzante has gotten some rave reviews here but my experience was very different. I had reserved a half day fishing trip that, due to illness, had to be postponed. I did sign up for the sales pitch at the development they represent which gave me a $50 discount. Property is beautiful, sales pitch fine including the free... More
