Located among lush thornscrub desert, and sandwiched between the Sea of Cortez and the Sierra de la Giganta, lies the quaint town of Loreto.
Boasting quiet beaches with gorgeous views, palm-thatched gazebos for shade, and that characteristic Loreto weather, this coastal town is perfect for disconnecting, unplugging and unwinding.
Popular activities that serve both mind and body include experiencing some of the finest Mexico fishing trips on offer, kayaking in the lush surrounding waters, participating in quintessential Sea of Cortez diving, or simply strolling the town’s cobbled streets and pristine waterfront. You’ll quickly acclimate to the laid-back way of life here.
But the true magnetic pull of modern-day Loreto lies in the slew of wellness week retreats that have become so popular for those who want quick-fix restoration. These retreats tend to focus on health, ecotourism, wellness talks, personal training, life coaching, and much more.
A retreat to this side of Baja can involve any variation of wellness. So you can indulge in more congenial activities, like relaxing by the pool, experiencing Sea of Cortez snorkeling first-hand, learning about tequila making, or simply enjoying clean-eating Mexican cuisine from the local establishments.
Or channel your inner yogi for some desert yoga and aqua stretching to help restore balance and focus. You can even out some new-age ocean meditation to help realign physical, emotional and spiritual levels.
Regardless of what you are after, Loreto’s premier wellness establishments specialize in positive life transformations under expert guidance. And although Loreto Mexico is a lesser-known town along the Baja Peninsula, sometimes lesser-known is exactly what you need when you’re looking for peaceful relaxation and a little bit of bliss.
