This marine park offers protection to many species of whales and other marine life. It is a spectacularly beautiful place and still unspoiled by too many visitors.

An incredible natural paradise! Be sure to spend at least one day on a boat in this marine reserve, including a lunch stop on a secluded island beach!

Stayed at Villa De Palmar. Took tour of islands. Paul was our guide. He was informative, gracious and helpful. He made every effort to make sure we all had a great time.

Make sure your trip to Loreto includes a boat trip to one of our Islands! I cannot stress this enough, we lived here for 3 years before we went "out to sea". We had no idea what we were missing! The water is crystalline, sea life is abundant, the air is pure, and the island beaches are pristine. You can... More

Took a six day kayaking trip that included Isla Carmen and Danzante. Kayaking was fabulous for those with good skills ( recommend Sea Kayak Baja Mexico for guides or outfitting). Could hang out at the tide pools for hours. Saw blue whale blows, dolphins, all manner of birds. Beaches are dramatic and short hikes for great views at some spots.

Get on a boat tour and go for a ride.Even if you don't snorkel, Coronado Island, the sea life and the scenery are totally worth the money.

Snorkling, boating, lunch on the beach. The water was so flat when we started out. This is a pristine area that is clearly being protected. There are seals, birds, dolphins and whales. The water is clear and there are many fish.
