Rancho La Puerta is a destination spa that offers an amazing program of fitness activities, healthful cuisine, luxury spa amenities, superb accommodations and entertainment.

Approximately 125 guests enjoy Rancho La Puerta's classic one-week program (see sample Activities program), arriving and departing on Saturdays. A few people stay for three or four nights only, while some may stay for multiple weeks. To hear about some of their experiences—in their own words—read their recent letters here.
As Winalee explains, "A week at Rancho La Puerta inspires my heart and soothes my body. The accommodations are clean, comfortable and charismatic, and blend in with the scenic grounds and environment. The spa treatments truly get five stars from my body and I consider myself a spa queen! The food is presented artistically, colorfully and yummy delicious."
Kevin shares, “Rancho La Puerta is blissful, serene and educational. The haciendas are private, bright and cozy. The food is quite delicious and absolutely fresh. I'm really looking forward to meeting new people and getting more people hooked on Nia."
