The town of Loreto is just north of Peurto Escondido where we are anchored. The port is a huge anchorage and there are many ways to get into town, including hitching with year round residents. People are generous with their rides and local advice. Our spanish is not improving though as most people speak english. We have not moved past one word sentences and pantomime!!

Every sunday there is a big open market where farmers bring their produce, local stores bring their wares and vendors sell tacos, burritos and hamburguesas. The veggies are cheap and fresh and delicious!!
