ISLANDS OF LORETO, BAJA CALIFORNIA SUR, MEXICO (OCTOBER 10, 2016) — This fall, Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto invites travelers to experience an authentic Mexican getaway in Loreto for an unbeatable price with the “Wonderfall Super Sale.” Located in Baja California, this warm weather destination provides a backdrop of fascinating history, is surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty, and offers visitors more intimacy and seclusion than many of the highly traveled tourist locations in the regions.
Under the terms of the “Wonderfall Super Sale,” guests who book travel before October 16, 2016 will save 45 percent on their resort stay at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto and receive $500 USD in resort credit to be used during their stay. This promotion is available on both European and All Inclusive rates. Travel must be complete before December 20, 2016.
When it comes to luxury and comfort, Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto is a beachside resort situated between the beautiful indigo coastline of the Sea of Cortez and the marvelous Sierra de la Giganta mountain range. From adventure-seeking honeymooners or leisure-seeking family reunion groups – a vacation at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto offers something for everyone.
In addition to its stunning natural beauty, one of the most attractive things about Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto is its proximity to Los Angeles International Airport. It’s a short, two-hour nonstop flight from LAX to Loreto International Airport. It’s even closer for travelers who wish to depart from the San Diego area via the Tijuana Airport (TIJ). The new Cross Border Xpress, or CBX, opened in December 2015 and offers a secure, convenient pedestrian skybridge that connects ticketed passengers directly from a terminal in San Diego to the departure area of TIJ. From there, it is a 1 hour and 45 minute flight to Loreto International Airport.
“Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto is the perfect destination for those seeking an impeccable Mexican getaway,” said Owen Perry, co-owner and president of the Villa Group. “Loreto has a population of 7,000 people and the resort property sits on a secluded bay with 24-hour security. Whether you’re looking for a carefree vacation, laying on the beach with a margarita in hand or a more active trip diving among the underwater cliffs in the ‘Aquarium of the World,’ the resort offers something for all guests.”
With 181 beautifully appointed Deluxe Ocean View Suites ranging in size from one, two or three bedrooms, these accommodations are far more spacious than typical hotel rooms, and can accommodate up to ten guests in one unit. Every suite has a balcony or terrace with stunning water or mountain views. Designed for the needs of the modern traveler, suites feature home-away-from-home comforts, including full kitchens that make cooking meals easy. Alternatively, guests can taste the flavor of authentic cuisine, unique to the Baja region, through the resort’s three outstanding restaurants, one of which was recognized with a 2016 Award of Excellence by Wine Spectator for its impressive wine list.
The Islands of Loreto boasts more than 100 miles of coastline, 300 sunny days a year and year-round temperatures averaging in the 80s.
Guests can take to the crystal clear water of the Sea of Cortez, a United Nation’s World Heritage Site and named by Jacques Cousteau as “the aquarium of the world.” Explore this underwater home to nearly 1,000 species of fish and marine life through paddle boarding, whale watching tours, Hooka diving, kayaking, SCUBA diving and other sea excursions.
Visitors can also enjoy the rich history of Loreto through mission excursions, such as the San Javier Mission Excursion. This unique, three-hour expedition takes guests to the top of the mountains, into wall-painted caves and deep within the city.
Guests can recharge with the help of revitalizing treatments and tantalizing facials at the resort’s 39,000-square-foot Sábila Spa. Yoga classes and a state-of-the-art fitness center are also available to visitors interested in a more wellness-focused retreat.
Other resort offerings include glamping (or “glamorous camping”) in a luxurious, beachfront Danzante Bungalow, world-class fishing aboard the Mad Dash tournament boat, and golfing on Villa del Palmar at the Island of Loreto’s new 7,000-yard Danzante Bay Golf Course. Designed by Rees Jones, a world-renowned golf architect often referred to as the “The Open Doctor,” the Danzante Bay Golf Course is a true rarity, featuring a mix of stunning views and luscious green holes, including the breathtaking Hole 17, which Jones has praised as one of the best in the world.
