PEACE AND LOAF -  This wonderful local bakery - here in Las Brisas, has run into some technical difficulties with their oven.  The good news is that Meteo and Carla have found someone who can rebuild it for them - better than ever.  They hope to back in business in about a week.  Watch this space for updates. 

IF YOU FIND YOURSELF IN LORETO... - and need a place to stay, there's a hip little hideaway with a Euro flare...Hotel Luna. Straight from Switzerland, owner Alberto Besoni and his wife Karla built the three room hotel, and opened it last August, a block up from the Malecon on the northern end. The rooms are immaculate, with a 60's flare with flat screen TV and wireless internet. There's a great bar on the roof and you can order food from the Giggling Marlin restaurant next door.
Alberto arranged for a fabulous massage for me, newly transplanted mainlander, Sergio Chavez. The rooms are 650 pesos a night and the massage was 300 pesos for an hour! Ask for directions to walk over to the brand new La Biznaga Galeria for hand painted clothing and fabulous natural and organic products.
I also recommend a great place for breakfast or lunch that most tourists would never find on their own....Cafe Sagitario, on the grounds of the Rivera del Mar Trailer Park. They offer a breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausage, potato, pancakes, and toast for 45 pesos! They offer chile rellenos, shrimp tacos, and hamburgers too. The most expensive items on their menu are rib eye and t-bone steaks for 110 pesos. Mother and daughter run...such sweet people...
