Fascinating to see the variety of marine life in this desert setting. We stayed at the time share south of Loreto and took the boat tour - well worth while

This park is made up of 5 islands off the coast of Loreto. We only visited Coronado Island and it was a wonderful wildlife, scenery and beach experience.

Went out fishing twice and also took a tour of the islands. Great rugged scenery. Nice to see porpoises and sea lions. The fishing was real good. Seas were quite choppy.
