Although Hurricane Odile was the worst storm to hit the Baja, Loreto made it through with barely a scratch. We are grateful that there was very little damage to the neighborhood. Cabo, which is located a few hundred miles south of Loreto on the Baja Peninsula, was not as fortunate. Loreto residents have been very generous in donating time, money, construction materials, and household items to help the relief efforts in Cabo. If you would like help with Cabo's disaster relief during your vacation in Loreto, stop by the community center to find out what you can do.
Storm season is over, the hills are lush and green, and Loreto Bay is buzzing with life as the new season begins! Every year, Loreto Bay homeowners head north in May or June when the heat sets in. The neighborhood shops and cafes take a vacation during the hot summer months, and although it is generally a quiet town all year round, it becomes exceptionally quiet in the summer. September storms and hurricanes awaken the sleepy community, leaving the Baja alive and quenched for the return of Loreto residents and tourists. Most people say October is the most beautiful time of year in Loreto because the scenery is green, green, green, like the Hawaiian islands.
