This is the GO-TO health retreat if you are anywhere near Sunny California.


Rancho La Puerta is located just outside of (San Diego)- A 2-3-hour drive from LA and a 1 hour drive from San Diego Airport.


It has become an institution. It has been around for over 70 years. Your day includes  hiking, a morning of holistic activities, delicious cleansing meals, spa treatments and rest time by the pool.


I was lucky enough to spend a beautiful vacation there with my bestie, Rachel who lives in San Francisco.


A typical day at Rancho La Puerta:


6am: Hike on the mountain.

8-9am: Healthy breakfast of eggs and veggies or oatmeal and muesli – buffet style.

9am: Meditation or movement activity of choice

10-1pm: 2-3 activities of choice – yoga/barre class/pilates/aqua workout/tennis/running/dance class – whatever you feel like! The list of choices is truly impressive and caters to everyone.

1pm: Buffet style lunch with a Mexican twist. Amazing salad spread with a healthy warm option. Always delicious roasted/steam vegetables on the side.

1:30pm: There is often a talk by the nutritionist on property.

2-5pm: Rest by the pool, spa time or enjoy more activities.

5:30-7:30pm: A delicious gourmet dinner is served – 3 course meal. Wholesome and cleansing options. You can tell the Ranch about any dietary requirements and they are amazing at catering to them.

7:45pm: Inspiring evening talk

9pm: Bed time!
