Last week I was lucky enough to visit the Islands of Loreto in Baja, Mexico. Nestled on the Sea of Cortez, this quiet and pristine part of Mexico is the perfect place to go for a relaxing trip in the sun. I was pampered at the Villa del Palmar Beach Resort and Spa, got to go on tours around the historical town of Loreto Mexico and took a boat out to see some of the wildlife and islands in the area.
Here is the view from my balcony:

The Sea of Cortez at noon: everything is calm. The Sea of Cortez was a relaxing destination because of its stillness.
