What people are saying about Loreto, Mexico

The tour is good, the guide is friendly and has a good chat. The paintings are wonderful, it is incredible what they did with what they had, what they tell, what they saw and imagined. The bad thing was that they offer food in a typical Mexican restaurant, which is not true, they give you a snack on the way and burritos in the van… I recommend that they give you an ice-cold coke for after such a walk in these heats it would be great. Very bad who writes what is offered if you have not done the tour. Because they offer a meal in a restaurant if they don't, that's not true. Cross out.

Excellent rock climbing tour. Our local guide Santos was extremely knowledgeable of the area, helped us in every way possible due to our inexperience in hiking. We climbed 350m above sea level and that was enough for us for a good sweat. Hiking shows will make the experience easier.

Chalio was a great guide. The mission was beautiful! The lunch was made from ingredients all grown and processed on the premises. Amazing trip, highly recommend.

excellent hike, just consider if some skill is required to climb stepping on rocks and scaling small walls.
