    Great and much appreciated report. My wife and I spent 3 days in Loreto a couple of years ago on a golfing vacation and while we loved the town, we really got turned off by how expensive everything was. I admit that we just assumed those hotels a few blocks outside of the tourist area were dumps and hadn’t taken the time to do any homework first. And you are right Ron – we basically used our hotel room just to shower and sleep and were outside all day long so that was a lot of money wasted. I think we probably ended up spending, all totaled, between four to five hundred dollars a day on average back then and had pretty much scratched Loreto off our gobackto list, especially after taking a beating financially during the pandemic. Now you got me rethinking that decision and we will start approaching these types of trips from a different angle, especially with the hotel, tours and dinners. We paid something like 350 dollars for the two of us to go out on a chartered boat with other people we didn’t know to spend a few hours out on Coronado and I remember feeling like it wasn’t worth it. They did provide some food but it wasn’t all that much and when you compare that with the deal Cheryl and her family scored, it proves that looking for other alternatives can really save a lot of money. There is no way to get around the green fees I suppose (although I am going to look now) but saving on everything else makes that a much easier bullet to bite.
