 Loreto is located on the Eastern side of the Baja California peninsula on the Sea of Cortez, named “the aquarium of the world” by the late Jacques Costeau. The dramatic Sierra de la Giganta mountain range west of Loreto consists of irregularly shaped volcanic peaks as high as 1,520 meters which plunge dramaticaly into the Sea of Cortez.  The native Californiano people said that Loreto is “where the mountains come to swim” and painted many reprentations of marine and terrestrial life in caves and on rock faces.
