I’m really loving this living-by-Mexico thing.
As I mentioned before, on Sunday I took a day trip to the luxury wellness resort, Rancho La Puerta in Tecate, Mexico. Unlike your typical high-end resort property, Rancho La Puerta isn’t about mai tais on the beach and baking in the sun; it’s a rustic retreat that focuses on detoxing, exercising and nourishing the mind.
Guests typically stay for weeklong visits, which is how long the ranch’s founders believe it takes to witness a change within yourself. During that time, guests take part in Rancho’s cooking classes, art classes and many, many workouts classes—I did Zumba and foam roller stretching classes myself—and get three organic, vegetarian meals included in the rate. The whole property is huge, so walking from one area to another is a workout in itself.
Considering all that, you can guess that affordability isn’t Rancho’s strongest suit—weeklong packages range from $2,950 to $4,800 depending on the type of accommodation—but it’s certainly a treat if you can swing it. Check it out:
