“There are now one or two blue whales making a sight. This is the only part (in Mexico) where you can see blue whales. The season is coming.”
Blue whales used to converge to Loreto for their breeding cycle during the beginning of each year, which catalyzes the local government to incubate an ambitious plan to develop its tourism sector, with other unique resources considered as a package.

“What we can offer is a variety of choices. Loreto is attractive when compared to other developed markets.”
Maritime creatures and historical vestiges combine to make Loreto an attractive must-see for travelers and nature lovers.
