Wkipedia - Loreto (or Conchó) is a resort town and municipal seat of Loreto Municipality, located on the Gulf of California in eastern Baja California Sur state, Mexico. In 2019, the city of 20,385 inhabitants is located about 350 km (220 mi) north of La Paz, the capital of Baja California Sur state.
Pueblos Mexico - Loreto has a rich history full of nuances, because while it retains its air of a fishing village, several of its attributes characterize it as a cosmopolitan place. At the same time that it treasures natural wonders, or ancient cave paintings, it seduces its visitors with the luxury of one of the best golf courses in the world and the impressive colonial buildings of the Jesuit missions.

The large number of excellent places to eat in Loreto is disproportionate to its small population. Of course you’ll find many establishments serving local and regional cuisine such as excellent seafood plates and molcajetes, chocolate clams (a Loreto icon) and machaca (a sun dried beef often served in tacos and burritos). In addition, there are many restaurants serve great regional food from all over the country. As a rule of thumb eat everything, especially if you see a line forming. Note that there are also many “pop up” food stands that serve excellent homemade food as well. For a complete listing, visit www.loretomexicoinfo.com or www.visitloreto.info.com
