Surrounding the Mission, there are approximately 150 people that reside in this peaceful setting. This included excursion on our tour was definitely worth taking in!

A great opportunity to view a bit of history in the Baja, and to escape the city hustle and bustle. It was so nice to enjoy the peace and serenity in the beautiful countryside of Loreto.
