This is its main tourist attraction, as well as the main source of employment in the area, thus linking Loreto’s economy closely to fishing. There are two

well-defined fishing seasons: summer features “dorado (Mahi-mahi)” and species like marlin (black marlin, Atlantic blue marlin, striped marlin) and sailfish (Indo-Pacific sailfish), which are ideal for fly fishing; winter fishing features “yellow tail (Yellowtail amberjack)” (jurel) and other species that usually are deep in the sea rocks. In addition to these seasonal species, Loreto's waters are home to other species like snapper and seabass, which are found all year long

Loreto, Baja California Sur

'''Loreto''' (or '''Conchó''') was the first Spanish (Spanish colonization of the Americas) settlement on the Baja California Peninsula. It served as the capital of Las Californias from 1697 to 1777, and is the current seat of the municipality of Loreto (Loreto (municipality)) in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur. The city of 14,724 people (2010 census) is located on the coast of the Gulf of California, about north of the state capital, La Paz (La Paz, Baja California Sur).

The town was founded in 1697 by Jesuit (Society of Jesus) missionaries, who found a steady spring of fresh water on this site, as the Misión Nuestra Señora de Loreto. The Jesuits were expelled (Suppression_of_the_Society_of_Jesus#Spanish_Empire_and_Naples) in 1767, and control of the Baja California missions was given to the Franciscans. In 1769, the Franciscans were ordered to turn over the Baja missions to the Dominican order and accompany the expedition of Gaspar de Portola to establish new missions in the unexplored northern frontier that became Alta California. The expedition departed from Loreto on March 24, 1769.

The town served as the capital of the province of Las Californias from its founding until the capital was moved to Monterey (Monterey, California) on February 3, 1777. In 1768, the province had been split into Alta California (today's U.S. state of California) and Baja California. At first, the two provinces continued with a single governor. Later, the town became the headquarters for the Lieutenant Governor of California Viejo (the province of Baja California).

The city is now a tourist (tourism) resort, catering mostly to U.S. (United States) travelers, with daily flights from the U.S. state of California to Loreto International Airport. Many American tourists enjoy fishing in "pangas" for "dorado" (Mahi-mahi or Dolphin Fish). Local restaurants will willingly prepare the daily catch of the tourists. Loreto has a museum that coexists alongside the historic, but still active, parish. Loreto has active sister city relationships with Hermosa Beach (Hermosa Beach, California) and Cerritos (Cerritos, California), California, USA.
