One unexpected aspect of the day was the camaraderie that formed between the guests.  Although everyone came with their own groups or companions, by the end of the day, everyone was interacting as one cohesive unit, discussing what they loved about their experience at the Ranch.  I hope to go back to the Ranch as often as possible.

A Mexican Cultural-Culinary Experience!
Sunday, October 26, 2014

Accordion 125x100_extra_11Join us for a Sunday of food, fun, fitness and Mexican culture. Put on your sombrero and get ready for an unforgettable experience at The Ranch that will leave you wanting to spend a week at our world-renown resort.

The day includes round-trip transportation between San Diego and the resort (about 1 hour and 15 minutes driving time), choice of several fitness classes, a Mediterranean lunch, a Mexican Festival and time to relax by the pool. You will truly feel like a guest of honor.

Our Mexican Festival features live music, spa, arts and crafts, a juice bar and so much more, including:

  • Snack on seafood tostadas from “La Guerrerense” and meet Doña Sabina Bandera Gonzalez, whose little stand in Ensenada was described by Anthony Bourdain In Newsweek magazine’s “101 Best Places to Eat in the World,” as “…the most mind-blowing fresh, sophisticated, and colorful tostadas imaginable. Absolutely phenomenal.” La Guerrerense recently won top prize in the L.A. Street Food Fest, topping over 100 other competitors.
  • Make your own cocoa-based spa products
  • Culinary demo stations celebrating the ingredients and talents of Baja California cuisine, including delicacies from top Baja chef, Diego Hernandez

150x200_specials_eve_10What to wear…and bring: Wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes for walking and pack lightly, preferably in a backpack, as you will be doing a fair amount of walking with your personal belongings. Bring a hat and a bathing suit (optional). Dress in exercise attire and fitness shoes. Our Health Centers include lockers, hot tubs, steam and sauna rooms. Cell phone use on the grounds or in classes and facilities at the Ranch is prohibited. Please respect the needs of other guests who appreciate our atmosphere of being a restful, tranquil escape.

Physical requirements: Rancho La Puerta is a place that grew over many years into a garden-path environment where walking is viewed as enjoyable exercise—and yes, you will be doing a fair amount of walking! If hiking is difficult for you, or if you have trouble navigating steps, slightly uneven brick paths, and rustic tile floors, then “the Ranch” is not for you. We are very sorry but we also cannot accommodate aids such as wheelchairs, walkers, scooters, etc

A note about the bus ride…

Rancho La Puerta is reached via California State Highway 94 which runs southeast from downtown San Diego. The 22.3-mile stretch between Jamacha Junction and Tecate is a very scenic road through the mountains, but also very “curvy” in many parts. Our drivers are careful and considerate, but if you have a tendency toward motion sickness, please consider a motion-sickness medication.

Transportation is from the SD Visitor Center on East Mission Bay

The bus leaves promptly at 7:30 a.m.
