LORETO, Mexico (Sept. 22, 2008) – The Villages of Loreto Bay, an 8,000-acre, seaside community neighboring the historic town of Loreto in Baja California Sur, Mexico, welcomes its newest addition to the neighborhood:  Casita Cortez, a, two-bedroom, two-bathroom home by the sea including interior furnishings starting from US$375,000.
