Its hard to put into words why RLP is so special or how exactly it seems to truly rejuvenate the soul and body/ But I leave RLP with a very recharged battery. I didnt realize how tired I was in both mind and body until about day 5 of my retreat at RLP when I noticed how wonderful I felt.... More

You'll find a consistency as you read the many RLP reviews. This is a special place and RLP is different from most destination spas. The committed week approach -- everyone arrives on Saturday and leaves on Saturday --- enables an ability to meet and really get to know people. To get beyond the superficial. It also allows classes to build... More

my daughter and I spent 3 days at RLP, generally people go for a week, but we could not. 3 days was fine, we had time to enjoy the classes , get some lovely treatments and at the end of the stay we felt very relaxed. The hotel itself is nice, there are quite a few small haciendas where all... More

What I loved: the food was wonderful. Mostly vegetarian, with fish and shrimp a few times during the week. Self-serve buffets for breakfast and lunch, with a served multi course dinner (soup, salad, entree, dessert). I was concerned all week that I had to be taking in too many calories, but I definitely lost some weight. The menu is lowish... More

Wonderful place for exercise, relaxation and exquisite food. I would recommend this place if your interested in vegetating and enjoying nature. The best part of going there is that Rancho La Puerta will arrange to pick you up in Mission Bay so you don't have to drive into Mexico. This way you can enjoy the scenic drive along I94.

I just finished my ninth visit to Rancho La Puerta (RLP) and it won't be my last. I am already planning my next visit. Each visit is better than the last. This is not the Mexican vacation for someone who want to lie at the pool and drink the margaritas. First, there are no margaritas. This is an active healthy... More

The Ranch is a home away from home for us returnees. Always consistent in activities, service and accommodations. . A wonderful blend for the mind, heart, and body. I've found the guest presenters always interesting, but even more interesting are the guests the Ranch attracts. I love the variety and quantity of activities, spa treatments, or just time in a...

There is no place like The Ranch.

My 19 year old daughter and I spent a week here in July and it was truly magical. I was concerned that she might not like it, being one of the youngest people there, but she had as good if not better a time than I did. We had wonderful dinners meeting interesting and fun people, loved the classes, meditations... More
