“Day Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

This is a must when in Loreto. When there go to the back of the church and see the olive tree its over 300 years old.

“Worth The Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

We drove to San Javier and were very glad we chose to visit there. It is a 35 km drive each way in the mountains. The first 28 km are paved and it is a good but definitely not straight road. The remaining 5 km are currently under construction and it is a little hard to follow at times. The scenery enroute is very impressive and there a few places to stop and take photos. The mission buildings are very well preserved and we actually preferred the San Javier mission to the one in Loreto. The mission itself was started in 1699, just two years after Loreto. The building was completed in the mid 1700's. There is currently little in the way of services in San Javier.
