Occurred on December 28, 2018 / Roca Partida, Mexico Info from Licensor: “These Whitetip Reef Sharks are resting along the side of a volcanic island named Roca Partida of the Revillagigedo Archipelago in Mexico. The water is too deep, so they find these areas along the wall to rest during the day. At night they become active and hunt for food. This kind of behavior does not happen in too many parts of the World and is a very rare sight. The remote location 300 miles off of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico makes it a difficult area to visit. This area is also a UNESCO World Heritage site and is protected from fishing and development. It is guarded by the Mexican Navy.”
Mexican magic is closer than you think. Located less than two hours from LAX, Loreto and its surrounding islands have been described by many as the Cabo of 20 to 30 years ago, thanks to the the lack of development.
Members of the FutureCast Forum recently toured the historic Mexican fishing town of Loreto on Baja California Sur and explored the growing trend for Seattle-area residents to seek lifestyles south of the border. Predicted to become the “first choice in second homes”, Loreto has gained in its popularity given its infancy as a resort market, relative home values and convenient servicing by Alaska Airlines (less than two hours from Los Angeles). A compelling alternative to the more frenetic and expensive Cabo San Lucas, property buyers, vacation goers and even the TPC Network are drawn to Loreto’s unparalleled recreation, full-service amenities and pristine natural surroundings.
“Loreto is the Baja’s next move,” said Dean Jones, President of Realogics Inc., a Seattle-based real estate marketing consultancy and owner of Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty. “For the past 35 years, The Villa Group have been the foremost experts in developing world-class resort destinations in Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit, Cancun and now they bring their vision to the shores of Danzante Bay.”
