My spouse and I will be flying into Loreto from LAX next year for the whale watching season in 2014... and we are considering our options for getting from Loreto to San Ignacio Lagoon. We have limited time, as this is a trip extension from a business trip to San Diego... so we were thinking about renting a car when we arrive at 1:30 p.m. and heading straight to the lagoon from LTO. I know that we should not drive after dark... but I'm hoping we would be nearly to the lagoon before it gets dark if we choose this option. Also-- we know some Spanish but we're definitely not fluent. Finally, we were wondering whether a regular vehicle as opposed to a 4WD will suffice. Anyone see any red flags with our plan??
If you have any alternative suggestions for transportation, and/or can recommend a specific rental car agency (or any to avoid) we would appreciate the info. Thanks!
