Travel Weekly magazine recognized the Islands of Loreto with a 2015 Silver Magellan Award in the Adventure Destination category. The award is a nod to the resort’s robust outdoor offerings, such as stand-up paddle boarding, glass-bottom kayaking, hiking and mountain biking, and PADI-certified SCUBA diving lessons in the waters that Jacques Cousteau called the Aquarium of the World.
