LODGING GUIDE - La Damiana Inn

History and Comfort in the Heart of Loreto

La Damiana is a small, intimate inn located in the heart of the historical section of Loreto. The house was built in the 1930s for the Salario family when the father, a General in the Mexican Army was transferred to Loreto. The house was renovated into a posada in 2005. The Inn consists of six rooms, a central living room, a full outdoor kitchen, a patio and garden area, and a front porch.

The Damiana is tastefully decorated with artwork from around the world and natural objects from the area. Damiana is a place where one can talk with your fellow traveler over a morning cup of coffee or an afternoon cerveza. You can take a nap in a hammock, read in one of the many rocking chairs, play with the dog and cat, watch the birds and hummingbirds in the garden, cook up a gourmet meal from the day's catch, or chat with Debora and Gerardo about your next adventure.

La Damiana is located on Francisco Madero, between Hildalgo and Fco. Jordan. This excellent site places guests within three blocks of Loreto's outstanding attractions, including the Plaza, the historic Spanish Mission, the town museum, restaurants and shopping. Or head east for a short walk to the gorgeous Sea of Cortez, where you can stroll along the Malacon, watch pelicans and fishermen in the marina, or search for seashells on the sandy beaches.

Amenities include secure off-street parking, air conditioning, WiFi, computer for guest use, bikes for rent, barbecue, extensive library of books, TV and DVDs, access to laundry facilities (small fee), loving dog to pet and a playful cat.

All rooms are large, have their own bathroom with a large walk-in shower, and individually decorated with plenty of character and attention to detail.

Damiana offers a beautiful and relaxing atmosphere where people can feel at home.
