Health and Fitness Retreat at Rancho La Puerta (Part I)

Sorry for the delay in posting, but last week I went off the grid (literally) with my mom, sister, and eight other wild and crazy Russian women to a health spa retreat, Rancho la Puerta, in Tecate, Mexico. This was my second time at The Ranch, and it most certainly won’t be my last! Personally, I am not hugely into fitness, and working out, but I do like to lead a relatively healthy lifestyle, but something about being at The Ranch just inspires me, as well as most all other visitors there, to make healthier decisions in their daily lives.

It's a little hard to tell, but that brown metal fence is the border between California and Mexico.

For those of you who don’t know, and I’m assuming that’s most of you since the average demographic of people visiting there are 50 year old women, The Ranch is spread across 200 acres in Baja California (or as I prefer to call it — Mexi-Cali).  It is just past the boarder, and only a hour and a half drive down from San Diego, but you honestly feel like you have gone to a different world! Everything is green and blooming, and the whole place just feels full of life, with the most perfectly kept and manicured lawns I have ever seen (well not counting the gardens of St. Catherine’s Palace in St. Petersburg).

The Ranch is truly a wonderful place for those that are looking to just relax and get away from it all, and get inspired to boost their own personal health and fitness routines. It really does jump start your desire to lead a much more health conscious lifestyle.
