An Important Update from The Ranch
Dear Friends and Family of The Ranch,
As we slowly reopen, we plan to limit the number of guests we welcome each week. This allows us to provide a more than spacious experience for the guests on property, and also remain careful to protect our staff and the Tecate community at large. Our staff have undergone certification on safe COVID-19 practices.
Our medical advisors believe that we will keep learning how to improve people’s resilience and recovery but they don’t feel that there will be any significant changes. They expect this will last 24-36 months, as viruses naturally run their course. They did unanimously agree that The Ranch is one of the few places they would unerringly retreat to. After all, what we do here is dedicated to your wellbeing—head, heart and spirit, and we have the good fortune of having ample, clean and healthy breathable space in natural outdoor settings.
As of today, while the border is still closed to non-essential travel both, U.S. and Mexico border officials have continued to allow all U.S. citizens and residents to go to and from Mexico with proper documentation and visas. What is mostly affected are the border hours when crossing from Mexico into the U.S. which have been adjusted to 5:00am – 2:00pm. Rest assured we will make sure to depart for the border with sufficient time for your crossing into the U.S.
Additionally, please be advised that you will need to purchase your visa online (see instructions here). Once you arrive at San Diego International Airport, you still have the choice of our staff picking you up or taking private transportation to the Tecate border. A Ranch representative will be at the border to direct you and Ranch transportation will be available once you cross as per normal.
Our medical experts have underscored the need to form small groups during your dining experience and in enclosed fitness classes. Hikes and outdoor activities will not require you to follow group guidelines. We are fortunate to have the luxury of plenty of outdoor space.
Understandably you may have a litany of questions for us. Our Experience Planners will be reaching out to you individually in the next days. We encourage you to read our COVID-19 measures and protocols. A consent form requesting your compliance and cooperation will be presented for you to sign upon check in.
We look forward to welcoming you to Rancho La Puerta.
