Rancho La Puerta: Destination Spa | Fitness and Spa Retreat

A Personalized Experience

My favorite part of being at The Ranch is how I feel there. The sunshine, the way my body feels after days of healthy, fresh food, exercise, nature hikes and rest—so rejuvenating.

- Lynne Harty, North Carolina

The Ranch is more than a grand getaway. It’s a revelation about what really matters—the door to a new way of being. Hike some of the West’s most picturesque trails. Try cycling or salsa, water polo or yoga, Pickleball or painting. Sink into a mountain sage massage and float under the Baja California sun. Farm-to-table meals are served under convivial skies. After almost eighty years, travel magazines consistently rate us one of the world’s best destination spas. Guests say we’re the friendliest. Just an hour from San Diego, we offer Mexican hospitality that feels like home.

Baja Dinner at El Cafecito

Baja Dinner at El Cafecito

Salmon is the entrée tonight but not the star at El Cafecito’s Baja Dinner. That honor goes to the fresh herbs and vegetables of Tres Estrellas, Rancho La Puerta’s six-acre farm. The Baja Dinner is an opportunity for Ranch guests to experience the farm and cuisine of El Cafecito, the farm's restaurant, which is led by Executive Chef Denise Roa in an intimate, outdoor setting.
