Top 10 Reasons to Love the Islands of Loreto

Part of my role at Curator is to work with our Villa Group client to raise awareness about the amazing destination of the Islands of Loreto in Baja California Sur, specifically the Villa del Palmar Beach Resort and Spa at the Islands of Loreto. About four times each year, I have the privilege of gathering a group of adventurous journalists and writers to accompany me on a journey to the Islands of Loreto, where we immerse ourselves in paradise. The toughest part of the trip is convincing everyone to return home – no joke!

Here are my Top 10 reasons for loving the Islands of Loreto, as illustrated through photos, though in no particular order (too difficult to choose!).

1. Gorgeous views of the indigo waters of the Sea of Cortez and majestic Sierra de la Giganta mountain range from every angle.
