With a focus on fitness, this is the place to come to get in shape and pick up healthy habits that you will incorporate once you return home. Rancho La Puerta’s 4,000 acres include 40 miles of hiking trails, 32 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, and an organic farm with a cooking school. Daily activities range from the rigorous (hikes, tennis and core workouts) to the introspective (chanting, drumming and qi gong), and guests are also encouraged to get involved with the ranch’s non-profit organisation’s activities to help the local community. Rancho La Puerta is the place to undergo a deep renewal and leave feeling completely refreshed.
