Just returned from my seventh visit to RLP. I'm not going to go on here, because what Deborah Szekey and her family have accomplished on these 3,000 acres above Tecate has rightfully become the stuff of legend. I would like to say, however, that the "dangerous border" news, if it were to ever to be applied to Tecate, is just a joke. RLP is beloved by the locals and I think the large Catholic church in town would more likely be a place for problems than The Ranch. Secondly, if you are a man and think this place might not be your glass of beer, think again. The resources of this place are such that you can make your stay be about anything you want and, believe me, from a physical culture perspective, you could not exhaust or overwhelm the equipment, trainers and environs available here. Don't believe in magic? You might after a visit. I've been fortunate to travel a lot of the world, am physically active and backpack a lot. Hands down, this is my favorite all-round destination.
