Each February and November, we bring Mountain Trek’s amazing health and fitness spa vacations program from our lodge in British Columbia to the extraordinary amenities of world-class health spa resorts. Come experience this successful health renewal vacation in the sun.
Located just one hour south of San Diego, in Tecate, Baja Mexico, Rancho La Puerta is the oldest and one of the most esteemed health resorts and destination spas in North America. Tucked into the mountains between the sea and the desert on 3,000 acres, the Ranch was the world’s first “eco” health spa resort. The grounds are scented with eucalyptus and rosemary; winding brick pathways reveal extraordinary gardens and an extensive organic farm. With sunshine over 325 days a year, it’s a perfect retreat from grey and dreary winters.
Choose from a full range of fitness and health spa activities, including cardio, dance, pilates, water aerobics, tai chi and more, all taught by the Ranch’s excellent instructors in beautifully appointed gyms and studios. Rancho La Puerta offers massage and other body treatments, hot tubs, steam rooms and saunas. There are “inner self” classes including meditation and chanting, as well as a variety of evening lectures and presentations.
During your health spa vacation at Rancho La Puerta, you can have both the Mountain Trek health and fitness experience guided by our own staff, plus the chance to sample the extraordinary variety of amenities offered at this health resort.
Explore the beauty of Rancho La Puerta
Rancho La Puerta is unique because the resort privately owns the vast property. Hike through exotic gardens, lavishly landscaped grounds, and alongside streams and creeks on trails that wind through boulder-strewn wild lands over miles of meadows, hills and mountains. The vistas are bold and the hikes as inspiring as they are invigorating. Some trails are suitable for all levels, others offer more challenging terrain. Experienced Mountain Trek guides will lead hikes in small groups of guests with similar levels of ability.
