Fisherman

They don't allow jet skiis and the fishing is usually pretty good. The town is very clean and safe. The residents are cordial

We have been coming to the Loreto Bay National Marine Park for yellowtail fishing for many years. Each year we paid a fee for a permit for the privilege. This fee has been worthwhile in my opinion. The quality of fishing has not degraded much. The water around the islands are as clean as the first time that we came... More

What a spectacular unspoiled place. The park is a paradise for those seeking solace in nature. The contrast between sea and desert is outstanding although some areas can be improved it is safe and quiet.

We have been coming here annually for yellowtail fishing in April or May. Probably the best fishing in Baja. There are dorados and bill fishing in summer too.

This is a beautiful place and one that shouldn't be missed if your interested in Mexico. The location is a little remote but worth the extra effort getting there! The water is lovely, clean and clear, the marine life abundant and the roughed mountainous landscape absolutely gorgeous. We had great fun on a daylong snorkeling trip and it proved to... More
