Loreto first timers

Thinking about going to Loreto in Oct/Nov 2013. We enjoy beachs and snorkelling and would like to try sport fishing. What else is there to do in Loreto to keep busy for a 7-8 day trip? Plan to stay in a hotel or condo (under a hundred dollars/night). We are not into night life but enjoy trying local restaurants. Prefer not to rent a car, is it easy getting around on buses and taxis?

We stayed in Loreto Bay the first week in January. It was a tiny bit chilly for water sports but we had a wonderful time. Loreto Bay is a 10 minute drive to the town but it was a wonderful place for us to stay. The homes there are so beautiful.

We went into town several times and had wonderful meals! We plan to go back soon as we absolutely fell in love with Loreto. Feel free to send me a msg if you want more specific information.

Buen viaje, Kim

Hey, my brother's in Kimberley. Just so you know, have a look at the bottom section of page 114 Frommer's Los Cabos and Baja 4th edition.

Loreto is a great town to get around by walking. We never rent a car and have walked the entire town more than once. The people are friendly and the history there is amazing. You will not get bored on a 8 day trip as there is so much to see and do. The Tiburon Casitas is a nice place to stay for your first time there. It is less than $100 night and Liz, the owner, is very helpful. We ended up spending about 3 weeks in Loreto on two separate trips last year, and I a headed down for a 10 day trip in several weeks. The fishing is great and the snorkeling is as good as it gets.
