Rancho La Puerta's motto, Siempre Mejor (Always Better) is reflected in  the spa's impecable treatment of its guests and the mind/body/spirit fitness activities that it provides on a daily basis..


Mount Kuchumaa (below), the great boulder strewn grandfather mountain, is the great energy of Rancho La Puerta.  Beginning at 6:15 a.m., daily hikes are offered to guests.  Two - Eleven miles of hiking trails are available for guests to explore and enjoy.
 


The Salutation of the Dawn
Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life,
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth
The glory of action
The splendor of beauty,
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow only a vision,
But today well lived makes every yesterday
a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day!
Such is the salutation of the dawn. 

by Kalidasa, Indian Dramatist

DEBORAH SZEKELY

Co-Founder of Rancho La Puerta
 

In 1940, Edmond and Deborah Szekely founded Rancho La Puerta to integrate ancient verities of health and wisdom into the vital new 20th-century lifestyle.  The Ranch is still operated by the Szekely family.

Segment 2

 

Back to Top

 

Rancho La Puerta, founded by Edmond and Deborah Szekely, is the original destination fitness resort and spa — family-founded, -owned and -operated. Today’s guests enjoy the very best resort spa experience, shaped by expertise developed over 65 years.

Each week, some 150 guests share 3,000 acres of mountains and meadows beneath 3,885’ Mount Kuchumaa. The peak straddles the U.S.-Mexico border, and
Native Americans consider its slopes and summit a sacred place — so much so that it was the first geographic feature in the U.S. to be named a National Historic
Site by the Department of Interior based on spiritual significance.

Segment 3


Late
husband, Edmond Szekely, a 34 year old Hungarian scholar, was the guiding genius behind the top destination spa for the world's best value voted by Readers of Travel + Leisure magazine (March '06).

 SEGMENT 4 & 5

PHYLLIS PILGRIM

Director of Specialty Events
(Fitness) of Rancho La Puerta
 

"Like colored chips in a kaleidoscope, the classes, events and presentations offered at the Ranch vary from day to day and week to week, and are so numerous, it's impossible to experience them all. So, every guest's week is similar, yet different."
-- San Diego Home/Garden magazine

At lovely Rancho Tres Estrellas (Ranch of Three Stars), bountiful organic gardens provide a large portion of the Dining Room's fresh vegetables and fruits.




Coming soon! The Ranch's Spa Cooking School, Cocina Que Canta (Kitchen that Sings) will open in the spring of '07 in a new, 4,500-square-foot facility at our 6-acre organic farm, Rancho Tres Estrellas. Guests can look forward to hands-on classes, delicious meals, and the inspired tutelage of visiting celebrity and restaurant chefs. Come to Cocina Que Canta for a complete cooking school experience -- in the midst of the lilting scents of rosemary and lavender -- and discover new and delicious approaches to healthy cuisine!

Rancho La Puerta is renowned for freshly picked produce and nutritious natural foods. They have developed, tested, and proven hundreds of recipes since 1940. Over sixty years of culinary creativity, experimentation and dietary research have culminated in a superb all-natural diet. It is low in fat, sodium, and refined flour and sugar -- while high in energy, fiber, and complex carbohydrates.

The Ranch's diet, which is lacto-ovo vegetarian, includes a seafood "catch of the day" five to six times a week for dinner, and several times for lunch. (A vegetarian alternative entrιe is always offered for those who don't eat fish or shellfish).

Designing your own fitness schedule is simple and enjoyable. Several guest briefings are held each Saturday (arrival day) to explain the Ranch's signature "Six Facets of Fitness." This is used to structure a perfectly balanced program consisting of vigorous physical activity, and equally important relaxation and renewal.

Rancho La Puerta initiated the "Fitness Week" - different classes every hour on the hour.  The classes change, the essence is timeless - a balance between fitness and renewal. 
 

For optimal results, Rancho La Puerta has designed classes that fit into  the following categories:

  • Cardiovascular Workouts - Aerobic

  • Strengthening and Toning - Anaerobic

  • Stretching and Flexibility

  • Coordination and Balance Relaxation

  • Personal Rewards

Travel Talk Radio believes
T
ravel is a catalyst for creating communication, peace, and commerce among the countries 
and communities of the world. It's difficult to fight with a culture where you have shared a glass of refreshment, 
visited their neighborhoods and experienced their customs. And besides its really fun to get out there and jump on a train, 
bus or plane, walk into a new environment, 
taste new interesting food and talk with the locals. Building memories that are packed 
with experiences of extraordinary places, great people and exciting events are at 
the cornerstone in living a fruitful and harmonious life.
