  Getting to the Casitas from the Airport     5-10 minute drive

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

Car rental companies, taxi and van drivers all know where we are located.  The address is:  65 Calle Davis Norte at the corner of Agua Dulce Street in case you want to Google it. Avoid the time share salesmen at the exit doors. The Villa Palmar time share property is NOT in Loreto, it is 45 min south of town at Ensenada Blanca.                                                                                 

 If you are driving here:         Go to the waterfront and then: 

From the south end of the Harbor/ Marina, turn up the short dirt road at the large sculpture of the Blue whales.  This is Agua Dulce street. Straight ahead you will see our black steel gate on Davis 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.  65 Calle Davis Norte

Driving to Loreto on Highway 1.  Approx 15 hr drive from Calif Border.   700+ 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.    Do not drive at night.  Cell service is often unavailable.
