Discover a different Mexico in Loreto, the first capital of the Californias. This pretty town in Baja California Sur is perched on the coast of the Sea of Cortez, and from your room at La Mision, you’ll get some of the best views.
The 70-room hotel includes spacious rooms with balconies, wood furniture and travertine marble floors. The pillows on your bed have varied densities, so it’s easier for you to find one just your style. No need to worry about the water south of the border—the tap and shower water is filtered (with a final-stage UV filter), so drink away when you’re thirsty. The pretty views from your window may cause you to forget about the flat-screen TV and Wi-Fi in your room, but they’re available in case you need them. Rates start at $128 and vary, depending on type of room and season.
Relax in the hotel’s bar and sample the tequila selection, or grab your meals at one of two on-site restaurants. Settle in on a lounge chair next to the pool and take in the warm Loreto sun as you contemplate what to do next. “Nothing” is a perfectly acceptable answer, and La Mision is an ideal place to do it.
