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.

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.
