Prior to the new set of flights, getting to this Pueblo Magico was a bit more complicated. Other airlines offer direct flights to Loreto Mexico from important hubs on the west coast, such as Los Angeles and Tijuana, which is accessible via the Cross Border Xpress in San Diego, but figuring out how to get to Loreto from cities further east was nearly impossibly and extremely costly. Now with American Airlines’ direct service from Phoenix and Dallas, there are plenty of connections for those wishing to visit this Baja paradise.
