Due to its isolation, arid climate, and varied terrain, the Baja California peninsula has evolved some curiously photogenic plants and inland landscapes.  Large cacti such as the Giant Cardon and the Pitahaya Dulce are well represented around Loreto as are hardwood trees such as the Mesquite.  There are an endless number of canyons to be explored that ascend into rugged mountains.  Erosion exposed rock yields fossilized seashells well above sea level overlooking the Islands that float in the deep blue Sea of Cortez, recognized for their natural beauty and biological diversity as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Bay of Loreto National Marine Park was established in 1997 in recognition of our surrounding water’s natural beauty and abundance of marine life.
