My wife found this little hotel, but I was quite skeptical until we arrived at the place. I didn't expect much of a little place in the middle of the desertlands of Baja California. Were we (I) surprised when we arrived at the gate of this little gem in the middle of this quiet little lane in this sleepy little town.
This brand-new looking place is owned and designed by Liz, a tall, animated, gregarious American veterinarian. Each casita (little house) on the property is a self-contained efficiency apartment. There are 1 to 3 bed units. Each has a fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, large bathroom, dinette table, a TV, and wifi access. The beds are very comfortable (important for wife). The small pool is adorned with a genuine whale vertebra next to it. The assistant manager, Ivan, can prepare a gourmet seafood dinner for you at your request. He actually charges less than comparable restaurants (in a high rise hotel nearby).
Tiburon Casitas is within a few minutes walk of the town square, 2 banks, tourist information office, several good restaurants, several local eateries (superburritos, roast chicken, roast pork), a supermarket (expensive), the local farmer's market, and the local marina for fishing trips. The entire town felt quite safe. We walked all over the place by ourselves. Loreto is also a good launching point for trips to further locations for whale watching and whale encounters(at San Ignacio), sportfishing, missions, hiking.
