While in Loreto, we stayed 5 days at Baja Outpost as previously described. 
However, we really enjoyed our 4 night stay
at Villa's de Loreto.  The rooms are big, the prices are competitive and
the grounds are very well kept.  there is camping, RV sites and a swimming
pool on site.
Villas de Loreto, is a prominent stopover for serious ocean kayakers,
bicyclists and 
other out door enthusiasts.  
I met some very nice and interesting people here.  I chose to dive with
Baja Outpost 
because (at the time of our stay)
Dolphin Dive Center (american owned--southern ca) was substantially more 
expensive than any of the other
dive operations.  I did however go in and talk to the person managing the
operation. 
I was impressed by him and if Dolphin Divers get their prices
inline with everyone else I would dive with these guys.  I will always
return to Villas 
de Loreto.
