El Tiburon Casitas

Luxury Rentals in Loreto, Baja

  Getting Here by Air or Car 

Airport Taxi Shuttle Vans are always standing by at the Airport Curb.

ALWAYS ask the price before getting in the van.  For a shared shuttle Van (4 people min) the current price per Van is about 6-8 dollars a person with 4 pp.  Extra  100 peso/ 5 dollar  charge for each extra person after the min of 4. Tip extra.  The taxi vans used to charge pp for anyone but now with the min of 4, it is wise to talk to your fellow passengers and try to get a group together before arriving.   The same vans or small white cars will take your private party into Loreto for about 25 dollars. The cars only hold 3 pp   Vans hold 6 pp or more.

 It is only a 5- 10 minute ride to the Casitas. Address is 69 Calle Davis Norte at the corner of Agua Dulce Street just up from the Marina.     

  Beware!  Also the Time Share Vans are at the curb. The time share salesmen  inside the terminal will try to "give" you tours, dinners or a rental car for some  money and an agreement to go to the timeshare Hotel Villa Palmar  about 45 minute drive south of Loreto. .  Villa Palmar timeshare/Hotel is NOT in the town of Loreto. 

 If you are driving from the Highway:

 From the Highway, follow the signs to the beach/ Malecon/ Harbor. Salvatierra street is the main street going directly to the waterfront. Turn Left on Deportivo  and then a right at the first street which is  Benito Juarez. Continue straight towards water and go  left on Calle Davis.  We are 4th place on left. Big black steel  gates and a HUGE mako shark on the wall! 65/ 69 Davis St at the corner of Agua Dulce st.

OR             Go to the waterfront and then: 

From the south end of the Harbor/ Marina, turn up the short dirt road at the lifesize sculpture of the whale shark.  This is Agua Dulce street.   Straight ahead you will see our black steel gate with sailfish.   Gate is usually unlocked during business hours  and the current code will be sent to you if you are planning to arrive in the night.  Address  69  Norte Calle Davis at the corner of Agua Dulce St. 

  The Hotel is  not seen from the street, we  are behind a privacy wall so look for the big black gate with El Tiburon sign or the Mako shark on the blue front wall! There is a big mural and sign  on the back wall as you look through our big black gate.

Driving to Loreto on Highway 1.  Approx 15 hr drive from Calif Border.      710 miles

 The Drive through Baja is rugged and beautiful. It is not for everyone.  Some mountain roads are narrow and many roads do not have a shoulder for emergencies. Large trucks cruise by at high speeds. Livestock and coyotes often run or sit on the road at night and can cause fatal accidents.

Mexican Insurance is required. Police are generally very helpful but Highway Patrols do ticket for speed, broken taillights, etc.  Pack extra spare  tire, water,emergency equipment. Do not drive at night.  

Get your tourist Visa at the Border or on-line before crossing. What if I breakdown on the Highway?

 Roadside Assistance – The Green Angels!   The Green Angels (Angeles Verdes), Mexico’s National Road Emergency Services, patrol fixed sections of major highways daily from dawn to sunset. The bilingual drivers, in green vehicles, provide mechanical assistance, towing and first aid. Their services are free, but there is a charge for parts, fuel and lubricants; tips are appreciated.

To alert the Angel truck driver, pull off the road and lift the hood of your vehicle.                   

  Beware Livestock on road!!!
