Snorkeling is the best we have ever done. Boat rides take you to beautiful places. The boats carry small groups, so you feel like you are nearly all alone in that beautiful bay.

A good guide is a must. Ours was Said Orozco. He was very solicitous and always looking out for us. He is knowledgeable, courteous, and funny. He kows the marine park like his back hand. We saw things that we would have never imagined.

We saw many dolphins, sea lions, and birds. We had ten dolphins swimming with our boat. Unfortunately, we did not see any blue footed boobies. The beach on Coronado island was also very nice!

More areas of this fantastic country should follow Loreto's lead and preserve the specially unique places before foreign interests and $ destroy them all. This is an absolutely pristine area, well monitored and protected by numerous organizations - hooray for Loreto!

Ours was privately set up through Loreto Bay Reality, so I am not sure of the company name. Sorry I can't help.

We stayed at the Hotel Santa Fe. It was clean, had a small kitchen, a patrolled parking lot, and was about $50 per night. Also the steak and seafood restaurant right next door was great.
