Danzante Bay at the Islands of Loreto is a 734-acre master planned resort communityon the east coast of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, near the historic town of Loreto. The community is nestled against the rugged Sierra de la Giganta mountain range, set on one of the most pristine coastlines in the world along the Sea of Cortez, and entwined with a world-class, Rees Jones golf course.
Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto is a luxurious beachside resort that serves as the backdrop for the Danzante Bay resort community. It provides the infrastructure and numerous luxurious amenities from recreation to dining, and great villa suites to spa days. All of these offerings are available for Danzante Bay homeowners and guests to enjoy. LuxeGetaways always enjoys luxury communities with access to the host of activities and amenities that come with hotels and resorts connected to the community.
Danzante Bay is approximately 25 miles south of the charming town of Loreto. This Baja destination provides a backdrop of fascinating history, is surrounded by natural beauty and offers visitors more intimacy and seclusion than the highly traveled, tourist locations in Mexico.
One of the area’s most enduring attractions is the Sea of Cortez, home to such a spectacular concentration of diverse flora and fauna that Jacque Cousteau once referred to it as “The World’s Aquarium.” The five Islands of Loreto create a sanctuary for more than 1,000 species of marine life and, in 1996, the area was declared a federally protected marine park. Scuba diving, snorkeling or paddling on these waters is a feast for the eyes.
It’s a short, 1 hour and 40 minute 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 sky bridge that connects ticketed passengers directly from a terminal in San Diego to the departure area of TIJ.
The properties at Danzante Bay gracefully blend the beauty of the rugged natural environment with serene, modern Baja interiors. Homes offer unsurpassed views of the surrounding cliffs, indigo waters and canyon landscapes. Beyond the quiet seclusion of the homes, every amenity of the resort is just moments away.
The real estate offerings will include myriad options.
- 122 lots approximately ½ acre starting at $281,000
- Private Residence Club, with 20 – 3-bedroom hillside condos
- Private Owners Beach Club
- Future Market Square (Retail Area with shops, restaurants, and night club)
