Went here with my mom, for a mother daughter trip. I loved everything about RLP. The gardens are beautiful, everyone that works there is friendly and helpful and overall seem to enjoy their jobs. Our casita was beautiful, clean, comfortable and loved the fireplace. The food is healthy, fresh, organic, plentiful and delicious. I loved that the use of cell... More

My daughters and I were on a once in a lifetime pre wedding trip to rancho la puerta. We were held at the border and my car confiscated for no reason other than the federales wanted a bribe. We do not bribe people. The people at the ranch were not helpful in getting my car back. We spent three days... More

Rancho was tops in its day, but they have gone more mainstream trying to cater to newbies to wellness, rather than getting into intense week-long programs for experienced guests. Whether for fitness or yoga/pilates or spa, they cater to the beginner in almost all sessions. And more of a problem is THE NOISE FROM THE HIGHWAYS!! They say that they... More

This is a beautiful spot for a peaceful, meditative, awesome week of delicious food, wonderful camaraderie, great fitness classes, and learning how to take care of yourself, body, mind & spirit. Start the day with an easy or strenuous hike on Mount Kuchumaa, enjoy a fresh breakfast with eggs, beans, delightful tropical fruits, champurrado... and if you are vegan or... More

There is nothing about RLP that I do not love. The staff, the food, the classes, the hikes, the location. It is paradise. I'm not saying it's for everyone, but it certainly is for me, my friends and my daughter.

Just blissful. 80% women. 20% men. But would feel comfortable coming here with my husband, my girlfriends, my sister, my brother-in-laws, my mom and dad in their 70's, or my teenager daughter. Great mix of activities. Classes well taught. All facilities are very well maintained. All equipment is excellent. Food wonderful (with dinner being the weakest link). Resort is so... More

Staff are very friendly and go the extra mile to please guests. The accommodations are authentically styled casitas are cozy and comfortable featuring lots of handpainted tiles. The grounds... More

I spent the first two weeks of February at Rancho La Puerta - what an amazing place! It was my first time at the Ranch. I spent the first few days figuring everything out and the first week fitting in everything I possibly could. The second week I slowed down a little bit and took in more of the beauty... More

After all boarded, we left for a Tecate, Rancho La Puerta. A comfortable ride. We each received an informational packet of the day's... More
