I liked having the option of planning my week in advance by filling out which classes and treatments I wanted on line, but some of our party also decided to “play it by ear” and do most of their scheduling after they arrived. It worked either way.

Providing you with the most attentive and personalized service possible is our goal. Please take the time to review the pre-arrival forms below and complete them on-line for your convenience.

Arrival/Departure

Transportation To and From Rancho La Puerta

Transportation To and From Rancho La Puerta

To Rancho La Puerta

Please note: If you are arriving in San Diego on Friday and returning to the airport to catch one of our buses on Saturday, please choose Terminal 1. Also, if you arrive at the Commuter Terminal, please take the “Red Bus” (courtesy shuttle) to Terminal 1.

A Ranch representative will be waiting inside the terminal directly next to the escalators that are closest to the baggage claim.

A Ranch representative will be waiting inside the terminal near the Traveler’s Information Desk.

Our buses depart promptly at the time noted and cannot be held for those who arrive late.

PLEASE NOTE: Please call us at 800-443-7565 when you reach Campo Road/94 so we can meet you at the TC Worthy mini-mart on the U.S. side of the border. Parking in this lot is $5/day and can be paid inside the mini-mart.

PLEASE NOTE: We recommend Mexican Auto Insurance when driving in Mexico. Please discuss this with your current insurance provider, as you may have coverage for a short distance across the border (we're only 3.3 miles in). Another option would be AAA or, just before you cross the border, there is a place that provides insurance, though it might be ideal to arrange for insurance in advance. In addition, you will need to be sure to take care of your visa ($30 in small bills) as you cross. If you prefer, you can drive directly to the Ranch and we will take you back to the border to help with this process.

Guest Agreement

All guests will be required to sign this agreement upon check-in. Please take a moment to read this agreement so that any questions or concerns can be addressed in advance. Each individual within your party must submit his or her own agreement. If any members of your party are under the age of 18, be sure to let our reservations department know so that we can be prepared with the appropriate agreement which will need to be signed by the parent/guardian. On behalf of Rancho La Puerta, we thank you for your reservation and look forward to serving you. We shall do our best to make this week very special, one that will happily mark the beginning of an increasingly joyous life. In anticipation of your visit, we feel it is important that we call to your attention certain matters concerning Rancho La Puerta and Mexico, our host country.


 

The Ranch is located in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico, and is operated in accordance with Mexican laws and regulations by a Mexican corporation, Indotel, S. de R.L. de C.V. In order to comply with Mexican immigration laws, you will need to procure a tourist visa. The application form for U.S. and Canadian citizens will be given upon arrival. Guests from other countries must obtain a visa from a Mexican Consulate before arrival in Mexico. Your reservation was processed through Rancho La Puerta LLC, a U.S. company that serves only as a booking agent for the Ranch. Rancho La Puerta LLC does not own, operate or manage the Ranch.

By signing this letter, you agree to hold Rancho La Puerta harmless from any claims or losses arising out of, or incidental to, your stay at Rancho La Puerta or attendance at any of Rancho La Puerta’s classes or programs. You agree to submit any dispute or claim arising from your stay to binding arbitration in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico, in accordance with Mexican laws and the rules of the American Arbitration Association. While it is our aim to provide our guests with attention and ensure that their stay is restful and enjoyable, the Ranch is not a medical facility and is not constructed in accordance with U.S. ADA standards.

We accept guests 14 years of age and older. The facilities are scattered over many acres. It is not appropriate for persons with sight or walking problems. Guests are required to walk to and from their room to the main Dining Hall, to gyms and other locations within the Ranch. Guest participation in the Ranch’s numerous programs and classes is entirely voluntary and at the risk of the guest. Guests are expected to use their own judgment concerning their ability to participate in any of the activities. If you know or suspect that you have a medical condition or physical limitation that may prevent you from fully participating in Ranch activities or a vigorous fitness program, consult a physician in advance of your visit.
